The monsoon in Tioman lasts from about from late November to late February, although being a weather phenomenon, it can set in earlier some years and later in other years. The peak monsoon months, December and January, tend to be blustery and generally wetter than the rest of the year. During the monsoon, the usually calm sea changes to a cauldron at times; high swell and waves, up to 3 meters or more, are no exception.

Due to this more choppy sea state and the resultant lower water visibility, scuba diving and snorkeling tend to be less enjoyable during these months. In addition, some of Tioman's exposed beaches may get washed away. So, keep in mind that, together with the higher rainfall, Tioman's generally sunny disposition is perhaps a little less cheerful in this period.

The good new is that, fortunately, all of these monsoon effects reverse the moment the monsoon starts to retreat, mostly by February.

The other good news is that it's not all doom and gloom by any stretch. To wit, more resorts are now staying open during these traditionally closed months. The reason for this is that even within the monsoon season, there are long spells of clear sunny weather with the clearest skies and the bluest heavens.

In fact, with the humidity down considerably and a constant cool northerly breeze blowing day and night, Tioman's monsoon summers have a crisp almost Mediterranean feel. Ideal for an escape from the European winter. And given the ever-growing numbers of monsoon season visitors in Tioman, it's clear that more and more travelers are catching on to the appeal.

The past few years, we're also seeing more activity based on the very decent surf that the monsoon brings to Tioman's shores, especially on its eastern side. Together with Tourism Malaysia as their main sponsor, the locals have, organized a surf contest in the village of Juara. Both contests have successfully drawn in respectable numbers of surfer hopefuls from Malaysia and further afield, all keen to have a go at the contest's prize money and sponsor-donated goodies to be won.

All of this being said, please note that during the monsoon the ferry service between Mersing and Tioman may at times be interrupted, or even cancelled. Best be prepared for the possibility of longer than usual waiting times. Tip: Got your ferry tickets from us?
