80 miles from Singapore
Seven miles west of Pulau Sibu Tengah on the mainland, Tanjung Lehman services the adjacent islands and fishing ‘Kelongs’ (see box feature). The granite breakwater protects the ferry jetty tucked inside a circular rock wall.
Onshore is a small building with some shops, a car park and a Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet. Roads connect to the rest of Malaysia and daily ferry services run to the fishing Kelongs, southern Sibu and Tinggi islands. At the time of writing there was heavy siltation on the inside south entrance and bank to the jetty. Deeper draft vessels best anchor outside in a comfortable depth and go in by dinghy to get your KFC.
