NEW Ewan Café

Co­ral Bay, Pu­lau Per­hen­tian Ke­cil.

This fam­ily-run bun­ga­low ac­com­mo­da­tion also op­er­ates a popular café with good home-cooked Malaysian food at rea­son­able prices, friendly ser­vice, and free WiFi. It’s lo­cated be­tween Long Beach and Coco Bay, so it takes a short trek to reach – but re­gard­less, it’s def­i­nitely one of the more popular restau­rants on the is­land.

NEW Mama’s Café Long Beach, Pu­lau Per­hen­tian Ke­cil.

As the long­est beach in Pu­lau Per­hen­tian, the choice of restau­rants along this stretch can be mind bog­gling. Mama’s stands out for its friendly staff, ea­ger to ac­com­mo­date us even when one half of our party de­cided to ex­plore the is­land for other din­ing op­tions. When we even­tu­ally de­cided on Mama’s, they were still wel­com­ing and help­ful. You’ll find a great se­lec­tion of bar­be­cued seafood, and a slew of lo­cal and Western­in­spired dishes like fried rice, noo­dles and chicken chop. They even pro­vide gi­ant fruit plat­ters for those who want a healthy life­style on the road.

Shari-La Re­sort’s restau­rant of­fers bar­be­cue buf­fets ev­ery evening along­side live mu­sic and (some­thing of a sta­ple in this day and age) free WiFi. Ha­lal. Child friendly. Daily, 7am–11pm. $$

NEW Om­bak Café

Co­ral Bay, Pu­lau Per­hen­tian Ke­cil (09 6911002/­

Come din­ner­time, Co­ral Bay is the more hap­pen­ing side of Per­hen­tian Ke­cil, while par­ty­go­ers will ‘mi­grate’ to Long Beach as the night goes on. Om­bak Café is one of the fancier restau­rants on the beach, of­fer­ing cock­tails, mock­tails, beers and a rather big se­lec­tion of seafood up for grilling. If you‘re trav­el­ling in a group of 20 or more, you can re­serve a buf­fet op­tion from the guys at Om­bak.

Ha­lal. Daily, 8am–11pm. $$$
