PULAU BESAR

8 miles from Mersing

PULAU BESAR. 2°25.855N, 103°58.494E

Safe anchorage can be found on the east or west coast on Pulau Besar (formerly Babi Besar or Big Boar Island) according to the prevailing winds in 6-8 metres. Our spot is off the fringing reef and jetty near Aseania Beach Resort on the southwest beach. A few low-key bungalow resorts and restaurants can be found ashore.

Two miles to the north are the twin islands of Pulau (Babi) Kechil, joined by a shallow 5-metre reef, which offers excellent snorkelling. On the southern Kechil is a small resort with concrete jetty and walkway. Depending on the swell daytime anchorage in 3-6 metres is possible south of the wide beach and opposite the jetty at 2°28.402N, 103°57.377E.
