Pengerang is an area at the southeastern tip of Johor, to the south of Desaru. The name is usually used to cover the dock and immigration post at Pengerang, the village of Kampong Pengelih and the town of Sungai Rengit.

Get in

By car

Sungai Rengit is around 35 km south of Desaru, or 120 km from Johor Bahru. The distance from JB will decrease considerably once the Johor-Desaru Expressway opens.

By boat

Bumboats shuttle from Singapore's Changi Point Ferry Terminal to Pengerang from 7 AM in the morning to 7 PM in the evening, operating on a first-come-first-served basis: once 12 people show up, the boat leaves. The journey takes about an hour and costs S$9/person, plus S$2 for a bike. The last boats back leave by 4 PM.

Get around

Taxis shuttle between the Pengerang dock and Sungai Rengit for RM 6/person (shared) or RM 20/car (charter).

Bicycles can be rented in Sungai Rengit, or you can rent one at Changi and bring it with you.


Pengerang was the site of a major WW2-era British coastal battery. The part of it at Pengelih, right next to the immigration point, is open to the public but in a state of nature, with no trails, signs etc. Most of the rest is now used by the Malaysian military. [1]



Chinese pastries are a popular souvenir.

  • Kedai Kek Lim Choo Seng. Handmade lao po bing ("old wife cake") for RM 1.50 a piece.


Seafood! It's the main reason to come here, with treats like lobster and crab much cheaper than Singapore or even JB.

  • Crystal Jade Seafood
  • Jade Garden Seafood
  • Si Wan Dao Seafood (四弯岛幸运海鲜楼)



There are three basic lodging places in town. If you want more luxury, head up the coast to Desaru's beach resorts.

  • Let Seng Hotel. Double rooms from RM 40.
  • Hotel Hiap Hwa
  • Seng Huat Hotel. Rooms from RM 30 in the old building (above coffeeshop), or from RM 68 in the new annex.
