8 miles from RLYC
Located on the southwestern tip of Langkawi, next to the private Star Cruises Call Port jetty, host to world-class cruise liners.
Anchor in 4-6 metres between Pulau Ular and Langkawi or motor around the breakwater into the 3-metre basin and short-term tie up along the floating dock.
There are three smaller bays to the east in a knuckle-duster shape that are more private but the fringing reef extends out from these. Good rule of thumb is to draw a line between headlands and anchor outside that line in 3-7 metres on sand.
Ashore at the main anchorage, the Awana Porto Malai (Resorts World Langkawi) has a Mediterranean feel with boardwalk, shopping and restaurants overlooking the southern islands.
North of the jetty headland is popular Cenang Beach with Langkawi Underwater World and Pulau Tepor just offshore with three small silica sand beaches.
