Sailing the Malay Peninsula and Borneo Island
Given the climate and protected waters, it’s very common for travelers and locals alike to sail year-round in this part of the world. The areas around the country are safe for sailing, so even beginners or those who haven’t spent much time in the water would feel comfortable on a boat.
Also remember that because this gorgeous boating destination is so close to the Equator, the country’s climate is typically divided into a wet season and a dry season. You are still more than welcome to visit no matter the time of year, but you’ll want to monitor the forecast and keep the weather in mind when planning to book a yacht rental for your trip, as you’d likely not want to be sailing in the rain. Monsoons would have the biggest effect on your vacation, if one were to unexpectedly occur during your trip, so look up the average weather for your sailing dates and be sure to take this into account when planning.
What to do in Malaysia
There are so many sites to discover while sailing the beautiful Malay Peninsula, so whether you’re looking for adventure or wanting a relaxing sailing getaway, there’s plenty to do at sea here. The luxuriant islands are best explored by boat, so rent your yacht in Malaysia and sail around the beautiful Perhentian Islands, where you can snorkel and swim, or just take in the gorgeous scenery by relaxing on shore. We also suggest just taking a few hours to sail around sunrise or sunset to truly see the beauty of this stunning country -- a sail to Penang Island would be a great way to relax and unwind away from the hustle and bustle of the capital.
Do not forget that you can also explore the unforgettable gem of Borneo on a yacht rental from Malaysia -- it’s definitely worth a visit if you love seeing wildlife, since it’s famous for the Orangutans!
There’s even more to do on land that you’ll want to keep returning to this country again and again. Of course you have to spend some time exploring Penang (also known as Georgetown), with its amazing culinary offerings and rich history. We also suggest the island of Langkawi, where you can enjoy some fantastic hiking through the jungle and catch a glimpse of unique animal and plant life that you can’t see anywhere else.
