300 miles from Singapore
Pangkor Laut is the iconic luxury Malaysian YTL managed resort. Anchor on the 15-18 metre bank right between the main jetty and the stilted villas over the water. There is a mooring with a small resort-owned Platu sailboat monopolising the best spot.
Get in as close as comfortable with some swing room off her stern. The bottom rises quickly from 15 to less than 2 metres here, so slow care is required. Take your dinghy behind the main jetty wall on the north to tie up on the small-craft marina docks at the back.
Resort management are helpful and it’s a great midpoint stopover from Singapore to Phuket. Excellent restaurants and spa treatments await, if you’ve got the budget for a splurge.
