The islands that are accessed using this jetty are Pulau Sibu Besar, Pulau Sibu Tengah, Pulau Tinggi, Pulau Apil, Pulau Kukusand Pulau Sibu Hujung. The jetty is about 117 km away from the city of Johor Bahru and an estimate of time needed to get here is about 1 hour and 30 minutes. If you are coming from Mersing town, the distance is about 65 km and you should be able to arrive in less than 1 hour."

The ferry terminal


Tanjung Leman is located 65km south of Mersing. The islands that are accessed using this jetty are Pulau Sibu Besar, Pulau Sibu Tengah, Pulau Tinggi, Pulau Apil, Pulau Kukusand, Pulau Sibu, Hujung.  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 2,5 hours
- by car Johor Bahru 1,5 hours (117km)

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