Lang Tengah Island is another beautiful island off the coast of Malaysia. Malaysia has been a visitor’s paradise for many decades now, and this island is one of the reasons why tourists are wanting to come to this beautiful tropical oasis. This is a beautiful island that has been untouched from the majority of the last hundred years, but is now open to tourism.
A Little About Lang Tengah Island
The island is located just a short distance off the coast of Malaysia, about 24 miles, and features an unbelievably crystal-clear water, with white beaches and a virtually untouched tropical jungle. It is located about halfway between two of the larger islands within Malaysia, Pulau Redang and Pulau Perhentian. This is fantastic because it means that virtually all of the mainland ferries come to shore along Lang Tengah Island so getting around in the region is quite easy.

This is why many opt to ride one of the faster speedboats to get out to their resort. Once a person reaches the island they are taken to the small fishing village of Tanjung Merang where they are shuttled to wherever their accommodations are at.
