Pulau Tuba (Langkawi)
At Pulau Tuba, you can experience ...
At two hours either side of high tide, it is very handy for
provisioning by dinghy, either directly to Teow
Soon Huat supermarket in the NW corner of the bay, or to any
suitable location on shore.
If attempting to land dinghy at low tide, it's best to go Jetty Pelancongan, situated halfway between RLYC and Kuah Town.
This anchorage is only suitable for doing your shopping then moving out if
you want to swim or be assured of a good night's sleep.
BEWARE: The holding ground here is poor and your anchor will drag in SW squalls of over 20 knots that occur frequently during May-Nov.
DANGER: A dangerous unmarked rock lies just beneath the surface at Lat: 06.15.10'N Long: 99.44.90'E (SE of P. Selang at end of Bass habour).
Best months for anchoring: Dec - April. Not so good: May - Nov.
