PULAU PISANG. 1°27.735N, 103°15.896E

Pulau Pisang belongs to Malaysia but the lighthouse and road leading to it were built in 1914 and because of a controversial, albeit long-standing agreement remain administered by Singapore’s Marine and Ports Authority (MPA).

Anchorage can be found south of the jetty on the 2-metre bank of thick mud. In southwest swell, reasonable shelter can be found just to the north of Pulau Sauh on mud at °28.481N, 103°16.206E1. For shelter from the northeast fetch, park just south of Pulau Tunda anywhere around 1°27.891N, 103°14.464E1.

Passage is possible between the islands at all tides for vessels drawing less than 2.5 metres. Ashore a track leads from the jetty to the historic lighthouse.
