Genting Village is located on the southwest side of Tioman, right after Nipah Village if you are coming from the south via Mersing. Getting here is relatively easy because the village is located on the main route of the passenger boats that ply across the island ie: Mersing - Genting - Paya - Tekek - Air Batang - Salang.
Genting is the third largest village in Tioman, after Tekek and Juara. Passenger boats will make a quick stop at this village before continuing their journeys to the villages of Paya, Tekek, Air Batang and lastly, Salang.
Topographically, Genting is rather hilly, just as it is the case for most villages in Tioman. In fact, the name "Genting" signifies its mountainous attribute (in Malay, genting means "a mountain pass").
Generally, the beach at Genting is fantastically beautiful with long sandy bays and clear waters. Added to that is relatively untouched beach forest that provides an amazing combination turquoise blue ocean and soothing greenery
The bulk of the resorts in Genting are of budget class range and mostly nestle along the hillsides overlooking the verdant tropical forest as well as the ocean.
