The Island Snorkelling & Reefs Stay Getting There

Perhaps one of the final Robinson Crusoe-type frontiers among Malaysia's East Coast islands, it is hemmed in by the better-known Redang and Perhentian getaways, it has escaped the crowdedness of the others.

When translated from the Malay Language, Pulau Lang Tengah means an
"Eagle resting on the middle island". Pulau Lang Tengah is between Pulau Perhentian and Pulau Redang.

Lang Tengah Island is a very small island located between Perhentian Island and Redang Island that can be reached by a 30 minutes boat ride from Merang jetty. The clear emerald waters and the coral reefs around it is popular with scuba divers and snorkellers. Lang Tengah island itself is covered by hilly tropical rainforest, which offers varied flora and fauna for those willing to trek through the island. Being only 30 minutes away by speedboat from Redang, Lang Tengah is the perfect place for a daytrip.

Snorkelling and Reefs
The house reef in front of Blue Coral had plenty of damsels, wrasses and other usual reef fishes as well as many sea urchins.
The shallow house reef in front of Square Point Resort was covered mainly with staghorn coral, and provides opportunities to spot adult blacktip reef sharks which frequent the shallow areas of the reef. There is a clear reef edge marked by surface buoys, where the bottom sloped away quickly into deeper blue waters.
