THE JUNK ANCHORAGE

380 miles from Singapore

THE JUNK ANCHORAGE. 5°24.595N, 100°20.450E

Anchor anywhere north of, and inside, the shallow middle bank in 6-15 metres on a mud and rubbish-strewn bottom. This is known as the Junk Anchorage and is historically famous over the centuries where the Chinese cargo junks moored.

The area lies off the clan jetties along the shoreline (the New, Yeoh, Lee, Tan, Chew and Lim family jetties). Dinghies can no longer just tie up at the Chew Jetty wooden steps, but pick up and drop off is still permitted. Water taxis are now available and can be sought by standing on deck and waving your arms. Diesel fuel is usually available from a fuel barge moored nearby.
