Tekek Town has naturally grown into the island's main entry and exit point due to its central location. The village is also geographically sheltered from the rough open seas which are commonly experienced on the eastern shores of the island. Its main places for local to buy grocery and other thing.

With Pulau Tioman being accorded the status of a duty-free island, local businesses were quick to capitalise in the small town in Tekek Village with numerous duty-free shops and outlets. In all honesty, being a duty-free island its a two-edge sword; on one hand, the business opportunities on Pulau Tioman have since grown albeit slight, and yet, the development that it brings may eventually jeorpadise the natural beauty of Pulau Tioman .For duty free shop ,you can get liqour ,tobacco and candy with cheaper rates compare to mainland.But its not like Langkawi Island,which are more product you can get there.
By Pulau Tioman's standard, the beach in Tekek is rather forgettable. In fact, due to its geographical nature, some sections of the beach had retaining walls erected to stop further erosion commonly experienced in monsoon seasons. Nonetheless, for a decent beach experience, the southern precinct of Tekek Village fronting Babura Seaview Resort and Samudra Swiss Cottage offers quite a nice sandy beach away from the town centre. The water is somewhat crystal-clear . Tekek are main getaway to Juara .
Further south, if you do intend to take buggy provide by Berjaya Tioman Resort from Airport for about one kilometre, to Berjaya Tioman Beach, Golf & Spa Resort for their guest house only. The view can be considered nice but not entirely extraordinary. Be on the look out for the occasional long-tailed macaques that are often seen along the road which can be an exquisite experience for mostly foreign visitors.You might can see Flying Fox Bat around the trees.
