11 miles from RLYC
Anchor just south of Pulau Rebak Kecil in 3-6 metres well off shore, in front of the Pelangi Resort. Watch out for the rocks just north of Pulau Tepor, which are well marked on the local charts.
This bay is Langkawi’s main beach resort strip and, as such, has plenty of hotels, bars and restaurants ashore. This is also where you’ll find the main nightlife activity on the island, although nothing as raunchy as in Phuket.
Unfortunately, the anchorage can be uncomfortable as occasional westerly ground swells roll into this shallow, somewhat open bay.
Further south, just to the east of Pulau Tepor, anchor in 5-6 metres just off the remote sandy beach at 6°16.292N, 99°43.425E. There are no restaurants on the island but it provides great protection in the southwest season.
