BuBu Transfer Services

We at BuBu want to ensure that our guests get to our resorts on Perhentian as easily and comfortably as possible.  To do that, we offer a range of tailored transfer services.  Our air-conditioned minivans will whisk you in comfort from your nearby airport to our office by the jetty in Kuala Besut.  From there, our comfortable BuBu boat will be waiting to take you on the final leg of your journey to paradise – the short sea-trip across to the golden beaches and clear blues seas of Perhentian.

Sea transfers to Perhentian Island

On arrival in Kuala Besut, you will be met by our representative at our office right by the jetty.  Hand your heavy luggage over to us, complete a few formalities, and then it is only a short walk to our comfortable covered boat.  This will take you on the short 40-minute trip across to the jetty at Long Beach Perhentian, right beside BuBu Resort.  Guests at BuBu Villas will be transferred to the other end of the beach in one or our boat taxis.

Our boat timetable is as follows:

Kuala Besut to Long Beach jetty:

11.30am, 02.00pm

Long Beach Perhentian to Kuala Besut:

10.30am, 12.30pm

All the above times are subject to weather and sea conditions.

The cost for the sea transfer is:

RM100 return for adults, RM50 return for children (2-11 years)
