145 miles from Singapore
Approach from the west between the Pulau Arang beacon and a buoy marking a restricted area pipeline running out from the coast.
Anchor off the small old town jetty in 2-5 metres on a muddy bottom. This spot in front of the drive-through McDonalds and Starbucks is well protected from the north, but is open to squalls from other directions. It’s a great spot to get crew their ‘Macca’s Fix’ a day up from Singapore.
Further north is the Shell Oil terminal pipeline and jetty, which can be seen from well offshore. There is a quiet anchorage just southeast of Pulau Burung north of the pipeline at 2°32.571N, 101°47.132E on mud in 5 metres.
