Lang Tengah Island Destination Guide
Pulau Lang Tengah is a very small island located between
Perhentian Island and Redang Island. This little island
is accessible by a 30-minute boat ride from the Merang jetty.
According to locals, Lang Tengah takes its name from 'Lang'
which comes from helang which means 'eagle' in the Malay
language, and tengah, meaning 'middle'. Thus, Lang Tengah
means eagles resting on the middle island.
The island is very small indeed. A round-island trip by
speed boat takes only 10 minutes. The beach is narrow and
land is limited. However, its small size gives it its best
advantage - Lang Tengah Island holds only 4 resort operators,
ensuring a peaceful visit.
And the winning attraction of this tiny and peaceful island?
Some of the best Snorkeling and scuba diving in Malaysia!
Best Time To Visit
Between March and October. Take note that most resorts are
closed during the North-east Monsoon, which blows from November
