MARINA ISLAND PANGKOR
This residential real estate development on reclaimed land, opposite Pulau Pangkor in Teluk Murah, includes the newest serviced marina in the region.
Approach from the north or south to the waypoint 1 mile west of the marina at 4°12.767N, 100°35.100E before turning east into the well-marked channel entrance. The shallow mud bank directly en route levels at 1.7m deep at lowest astronomical tide. Deeper draft vessels can anchor closer to Pangkor Laut Ferry Terminal and wait for high tide to cross. If in doubt follow one of the Pangkor deeper-draft ferries.
Part of an ambitious real estate development, Marina Island Pangkor was the first man-made island reclamation in Malaysia. It has become the new gateway to Pangkor Island and Pangkor Laut via their own ferry jetty and terminal. The reclaimed island is 320 acres connected to the mainland by a 400-metre causeway bridge.
Facilities include 60 wet berths, a slipway, acres of extensive hardstand and covered work sheds for seven yachts. The jetty complex has ferry terminal, marina management, restaurants, bars, offices and shops. It also houses the luxury departure lounge for the exclusive Pangkor Laut Resort.
Full Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) are nearby and the marina offers a free shuttle bus service for longer-term yachts. Fuel is available by jerry cans booked in advance.
