 Tanjung Leman
Ben van Wijnen.

The ferry terminal


Tanjung Leman is located 72km south of Mersing. It's the departure point for boats that go to some islands. Pulau Tinggi, Pulau Sibu and Sibu Besar have always been popular destinations. Tanjung Leman has a terminal and the boats are leaving at:
- 09.00 hours
- 14.00 hours
- 18.00 hours
- 21.00 hours
On the ferry's life vests are provided and must be worn by law. The journey takes about 20 - 45 minutes. That depends on the islands where you're going to. The terminal building is new and houses toilets and restaurants. Taxis are also available to transfer visitors to Johor Bahru or any other place in Malaysia. By road, it's approximately 120km to Johor Bahru.

Just down the road from the Terminal is Tunjuk Laut Beach Resort, with some fairly decent looking chalets on the little beach. The beach and the Terminal are quite far off from the main road, which makes it a little difficult to find. The cape (the Tanjung) has 2 jetties.
Currently only the new jetty which sits on the bank of a river is in use. It has a secured car park for travellers heading into the nearby island.
The old jetty is no longer in use but is still accessible by car through the road that leads into a nearby chalet. It's a favourite place for beach anglers. There are also small fisherman jetties in the vicinity along the river.
Pantai Tanjung Leman is a beach which is popular among the locals. The beach is also a perfect spot for campers but it is advisable to camp there on the weekends only unless it is a big group.



There are bathroom facilities and food stalls on the beach. It is ideal for a short family weekend getaway
There are kayaks available for those wishing to venture out beyond the shoreline. Also snorkelling is worthwhile as there are nice corals around. The beach is also a good spot to watch some white hornbills flying above.
Chairs and shades are plenty for those who just want to have a quick escape from the hustle and bustle of city life with families and friends.
When you follow the road to the north, you'll find a village called Kampong Tenggaroh just a few km of Tanjung Leman. Travelling time:

- by car from Singapore 3 hours
- from Johor Bahru 2 hours

- by car from Kuala Lumpur 5 hours
- by bus and taxi from Singapore 3.5 hours

Go to the left, round to the right, to the end of the first parking area, take the small roadway that veers to the left, following it round to the right and you will be in the main parking area that Tg. Leman jetty. Once you've parked go up the main stairs in the middle of the jetty complex. There's a window on your left to purchase the jetty coupon (RM10 per person). The toilet is to your right and costs 30 cents (without paper).

Driving from Singapore to Tanjong Leman is easy. The roads from Johor Bahru have been improved tremendously with over passes at busy intersections and dual carriageway most of the route now. We recommend using the Causeway now the Eastern Dispersal Link road is open the new motorway bypasses downtown Johor Bahru.
