KUALA TERENGGANU HARBOUR & MARINA

260 miles from Singapore

KUALA TERENGGANU HARBOUR & MARINA 5°20.296N, 103°7.877E

Forty miles north of Pulau Tenggol is the thriving oil and gas port of Kuala Terengganu. The main activity was fishing until the 1980s, when oil and gas fields began to be developed in the Gulf of Thailand.

Now the major east coast supply port for the Malaysian oil industry, the government recently completed construction of a mile long crab-claw-like reclamation breakwater sheltering the harbour. This makes Terengganu the most protected spot on the entire east coast of the Khra Isthmus, but beware the rock breakwater exacerbates the north south currents which can reach three knots across the entrance mid tide.
