Anchor offshore from either the E-Gate building (prominent
cupola) or the blue-roofed building housing the Jabatan Laut
headquarters for the northern region of peninsula Malaysia.
Be alert to
submarine cables and the associated no-anchoring area. The anchorage is
handy to the old marine police jetty, where diesel fuel can be bought.
The old marine police jetty is no longer being maintained.
The bay is slated for land reclamation. A Tesco hypermarket and associated shops and food court are handy to this anchorage.
