Private transfer Perhentian Islands to Penang

We are planning a trip to Malaysia next year. We would like to arrive and depart from Penang but want to spend the middle part of our holiday on the Perhentian Islands.

Can anyone advise me of the potential cost of a private transfer from Kuala Besut to a hotel in Georgetown. How long would the journey take.

Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

You can charted the shuttle van from local tour agency by make advance booking.The transfer is around RM800.00 per way from Kuala Besut jetty to Penang ( GeorgeTown) ,its mean you can take anytime of departure either 9.00am / 1.00pm and 5.00pm last boat from Perhentian Island.

The journey will take 6-7 hour depends on traffic condition. Most of shuttle van have limited for 10 people seat with air condition.

A bit shorter journey if you take a flight from Kota Bharu, as you will arrive at Penang airport at 2.10pm and followed by a 30 mins taxi ride to Georgetown.

From Kuala Besut jetty point, there are plenty of waiting taxis.

Take the 9am boat from Pulau Pehentian, 45-60 mins taxi ride(about RM60) to Kota Bharu airport, 55 mins flight to Penang, 30 mins taxi to Georgetown (about RM50 taxi coupon)..

When booked early, you get good deals at Firefly flights, as low as RM69 each one way.
