Yachts heading up the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, or on to the Gulf of Thailand, may enter Malaysia at Tanjung Belungkor Ferry Terminal or Tanjung Pengelih at Pengerang. Both are tucked behind the reclaimed island of Pulau Tekong off Singapore’s northeast corner. Opportunities to check in further up the Malaysian coast are located at Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu and Kota Bharu.

Just 30 miles from Singapore, on the southeast coast of Johor, lies the 3,800 acre Desaru Coast Integrated Resort Development. This government-linked mega-project has 17 km of oceanfront, Ernie Els club golf courses, the massive Adventure Water Park with a 4-metre high wave pool, Hard Rock Hotel, Westin Resort, Anantara Resort and a One and Only Resort. There is the River Walk Retail and Entertainment Boulevard and several other recreational and tourist offerings in Phase 1 of this project.

Tioman is the largest island of the 64 in the Seri Buat group – with some beautiful beaches and a 1,000-metre mountain at its centre – and is close enough to Singapore to have developed a number of good quality resorts.

Terengganu is the last CIQ opportunity on this coast to officially check out of Malaysia.
