6 miles from Tanjong Lehman
Otherwise known as ‘The Island of Perilous Passage’ because it was a pirate haunt, Pulau Sibu is well known for its beaches and is a favourite for Singaporeans and regional expats.
Anchorage is available anywhere in 2-8 metres all around the island depending on prevailing conditions. We like just off the kampong jetty in 2-5 metres on the east coast. It leads to the local village school and administration buildings. A half mile north are jetties that lead to camps and higher-end bungalow resorts on both sides as the island narrows.
The best anchorage on the east coast is off the beach at the islands’ narrowest point on sand in 5-8 metres at 2°12.940N, 104°4.610E.
