Two miles north of Malacca River entrance, and a half-mile offshore from the new reclamation, is the small island of Pulau Upeh. Anchor 150 metres off the jetty on sand in 2-3 metres.

Ashore a small resort welcomes yachts and offers a pool, restaurant and water sports. There’s an ancient freshwater well and several relics from WWII scattered around the island. Pulau Upeh is also the local sanctuary for nesting hawksbills, one of the rare species of sea turtles in the region. Hundreds come on shore at night to make their nests on the main beach.
