15 miles from Tanjong Lehman
Good holding is found on the east coast of Pulau Tinggi north or inside the small islets of Pulau lboi. The waters here offer the best snorkelling and scuba diving in this group.
From the north of Pulau Iboi looking southwest at low tide creates the optical illusion that the passage between Pulau Tinggi and Pulau Iboi is full of drying rocks. However, the passage is clear and always more than 5 metres deep. Motor west until the true passage south opens up.
Just to the south are a series of small islets with fantastic beaches and shoals where daytime anchorage is possible. Amongst these is the famous One Tree Rock. Our best pick is idyllic Pulau Simbang off the south-facing beach in 6 metres at 2° 15.843N, 104° 9.000E
