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
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
