45 miles from Terengganu
50 miles north of Kuantan is the small offshore island of Pulau Tenggol. Anchor in 12-15 metres on a sandy bottom off the cul-de-sac Telok Ayer Tanwah (Fresh Water Bay), mid west coast. Ashore is the Tenggol Coral Beach Resort. This is a good stopover for the night. The resort accepts outside guests at their restaurant and will arrange dive trips to the best local dive sites. The best diving and snorkeling is just two miles north at Pulau Nyireh 4° 50.541N, 103° 39670E and Pulau Tokong Burong 4° 51.725N, 103° 39.504E. There are commercial moorings at these sites but they’re light tackle for speedboats. Best anchor off in 12-18 metres or stay in the resort bay and take one of their trips for far less hassle.
