17 miles from Royal Langkawi Yacht Club
Two man-made islands have been built in Pantai Kok Bay to protect the entrance to Telaga Harbour Marina with Gunung (Mount) Mat Cincang providing a spectacular backdrop. A large sandy-bottom area of open water behind the islands offers good anchorage and some moorings in 3-5 metres.
The approach into the 67-berth marina leaves both of the artificial islands to port and there is a marked channel towards the lighthouse at the marina entrance. Entering the marina, the fuel and water berth is on the starboard side with local fishing boats tied alongside on port.
Onshore next to the marina office is a café, bank, post office, service station and convenience store. A small CIQ facility ensures security for regular backpacker ferry runs to Koh Lipe, 30 miles north in Thailand. On the far interior of the basin are a number of stern-to superyacht berths on a waterfront of lazy restaurants and nightclubs.
Close by is the oriental village, which is at the base station of the Langkawi Cable Car and the Seven Wells waterfalls. The cable car goes in two stages to the top of one of the highest peaks on the island and has fabulous panoramic views.
This marina is our recommended stop for yachts cruising north or south without the detour into Bass Harbour. VHF Ch. 69. www.telagaharbour.com
