Fjords Gubang islands (Pulau Dayang)

Characteristics

Description

The area known as "The Fjords" is the name given to  this general group of islands SE of Kuah. Quiet and best protection from any nasty weather,  it is equal to the "Hole In The Wall"  anchorage in the NE of the island.

The entrance is just to the south of the large sign on the cliff saying "Kilim Geoforest Park".  On seeing it it is clear why it is called the "Hole in the Wall".  Entrance is deep - 16 - 20 m, hallowing to 5 or so for a while once inside, then deepening again.  It shallows rapidly just after the branch to the right with moorings.

We anchor by 3/12 m in mud, clay and shale with excellent holding.
While anchored in the Fjords, take  a dinghy trip to the "Pregnant Maiden Lake", about 1nm to the NW.

Another option is to anchor your yacht there, but from 1000-1600 there  are dozens of long-boats full of tourists to cope with on most days.
Take your bathing suit for a refreshing fresh-water dip in the lake.

Due to the limited space, this particular anchorage is suitable  for only 5 or 6 average size yachts to swing around on tide changes.
