For islands such as perhentian where it is easily assessible and there are numerous resorts catering to a wide spectrum of budgets, there are also lots of restaurants and cafes which will sort of cater to your eating preferences. However if you travel during the period of Ramadhan, chances are that many small eateries will not be open. Bring some snacks to tie you over. Other times of the year, there will not be any issues. Please be mindful that the island is home to a Muslim community , some places sell alcohol but many don't. So, to opt for a package or just a room?
