According to Trip advisor article, Coral Island, a small island away from Tioman, is also known as Pulau Tulai. It is a very famous site for snorkeling and diving activities especially when it is still very much pristine compared to other beach sites. It is crystal clear with fair sands and coral beds stretching out to the ocean. There are many colourful corals and marine life to observe here. It is always an adventure here on the paradise island.
