Pulau Singa Besar (Langkawi)

Characteristics

Description

Pulau Singa Besar is located about 17km from Kuah, nestled between the smaller island of Pulau Beras Basah to the west and Pulau Dayang Bunting to the east. The sedimentary rocks on this island are reputed to be among the oldest in Malaysia going back 500 million years.

This island is a wildlife sanctuary where you can find lizards, mouse deer, macaques, eagles and hornbills roam freely.

At low tide, parts of the coral bed of Pulau Singa Besar is exposed. Although rich in coral beds, some of the reefs are dead due to muddy sediments brought by currents from the Straits of Malacca.

Because of its unspoilt natural beauty and prolific flora and fauna, the island was declared as a forest reserve and a permanent bird and animal sanctuary in 1988.

Fresh water is available from a tank on the beach near old building. 

You can have a picnic on the pristine beaches and enjoy swimming in the surrounding waters. There are no hotels or chalets on this island.

Anchor by 3/4 m in mud and shale with excellent holding.

Danger: There's a horse-shoe shaped fringing reef on North side.
 Also, beware of submerged rock Lat: 06.15.10'N Long: 99. 44.90'E
