19 miles from Tioman Marina
These twin islands of Sembilang and Seri Buat, connected by drying reef, are stunning and provide good shelter in both seasons. The entire archipelago, including Pulau Tioman, are named after this island. Anchor in 5-10 metres on the shallow sandy bank in between, favouring the Seri Buat island. Take your dinghy around the south headland to the east and up the mile long mangrove creek for an ‘African Queen-esque’ adventure.
16 miles from Tioman Marina
In southerly winds drop anchor in 10-12 metres off the fringing reef in any of the three northeastern bays of the main island. There’s reasonable snorkeling all around these bays.
