Pulau lang Tengah has always been my wanted to visit list however I’ve been stucked with going to Perhentians for the past 4 times. Pulau Lang Tengah , or middle island possible due to it’s proximity between Pulau Redang and Pulau Perhentian is possibly one of the best Island in Peninsular Malaysia. The water is pristine and crystal clear due to it’s proximity. If you go at the right time around March, visibility of the water can be 20 meters or more. Unlike Pulau Perhentian and Pulau Redang, Pulang Lang Tengah has considerable less tourist. Expect nothing but blue sky, crystal clear sea water, sun and solitude at Pulau Lang Tengah.
Waters are crystal clear with fishes and mostly dead corals. The visibility are so clear that you can see the layers of the waters from shore. Sand is smooth and white. I believe this would be a great destination for diving. The best part of Lang Tengah is you can have the entire beach by yourself while swimming and watching for sharks.
To get there, you can take public transport to/ from Kuala Terengganu then to Merang, Pulau Redang and Pulau Lang Tengah Jetty or I would always prefer a road trip through east coast states of Malaysia. Be at the jetty before 10am as most of the boats leave for islands around that time.
There are only a few resorts in Pulau Lang Tengah, to be safe most of these resorts has an office at Kuala Lumpur. You should book the package earlier during peak season from KL office. Some resorts does offer Monday(weekday) check in price provided if you book from KL office. Just ask.
