Description

Pulau Tuba (5 km S of Langkawi) is the only inhabited island besides the main island of Langkawi itself. This Langkawi island gets its name from the tuba roots. It is the only other island that offers accommodation and there are a few places to stay.
At Pulau Tuba, you can experience traditional fishing village life with fishermen returning home in the evenings in their quaint fishing boats.

Anchor well out in the bay in 4-6 metres. At low tide, enter by dinghy to the long jetty and tie to a fishing boat to avoid the sharp barnacles.

At the Malay fishing village there are basic restaurants ashore.
