  The main attempt of this study is to explore the socio-economic impacts of agro-tourism activity of fishing communities in Malaysia. As many studies with regard to tourism are placing their focus on tourism in general, less has been placed on agro-tourism and the expected findings from this study can fill the existing gap. This is a quantitative study where data were gained through developed questionnaires. A total of 880 respondents from eight Desa Wawasan Nelayan villages had been selected randomly. Findings have confirmed that agro-tourism activities were able to increase villagers’ income, provide employment opportunities and increase demand for local products. Albeit its advantages were economic, it can be concluded that agro-tourism activities embolden healthy relationships within the community while at the same time uplifting their quality of life.

  Enhancing the Quality of Life (QoL) of citizens is an agenda that must be prioritized by the local government. Inhabited island communities in this country especially in Pulau Perhentian, Terengganu require more attention from the government. This study aims to examine the level of objective quality of life on the studied island. It also focuses on the settlements and residential areas of the community. Survey findings indicate that the level of objective quality of life of the population under study is at a medium level. From one aspect, the survey shows that the community here lives in highly crowded settlements. The houses in this community were in a poor state in comparison to the mainland community. Pulau Perhentian clearly needs a better settlement management system. Immediate action from the government is necessary in order to provide the community in Pulau Perhentian with a better quality of life.
