25 miles from Sisters Islands
North of Pulau Tekong, and eight miles from Changi Village, is the antiquated roll-on roll-off (RoRo) car ferry terminal with a small marina at Tanjung Belungkor. Daily ferry services run the 7 miles around Pulau Tekong to and from the Malaysian-leased Changi Ferry Terminal on Singapore.
Both ferry terminals were built in the ‘80s and are equipped with hydraulic link-span bridges for RoRo ferry access. Touted as the eastern ‘3rd Link’ connecting Singapore to Johor, Tanjung Belungkor is a full ISPS port with CIQ facilities and a few marina berths for yachts clearing in or out of Malaysia.
The recent local developments nearby at Desaru Coast include water parks, golf courses, luxury hotels and convention centres. Call on VHF Ch.16 on arrival and stay on board your vessel until an Malaysian Clearance official arrives at the dock.
