TANJUNG PIAI NATIONAL PARK

This low-lying mangrove headland is a national park and heralds the starting point of the Malacca Straits. To the east is the cargo port of Tanjung Pelepas, Forest City (see box) and the Tuas 2nd Link Bridge connecting Singapore to Malaysia.

Anchor on thick mud in 2 metres, 600 metres directly east of the concrete pier and take your dinghy to stand on the southernmost tip of mainland Eurasia and peninsular Malaysia.

The land side of the jetty has interesting monuments and plaques to that effect. The smaller pier 200 metres north has less foot traffic but dries at the end on very low tides. The half-kilometre elevated walkway through the national park mangroves is worth the sweat. The timbers are well maintained and you’re sure to see plenty of huge mudskippers amongst the mangroves and macaque monkeys overhead.

The walkway finishes at the asphalt road with National Park office, a few monuments and some rustic places to shop and eat. The park entrance fee is 5RM. A mile north is the stilted Tanjung Piai Resort with a seafood restaurant.
