Lang Tengah (Malay: Lang Tengah) or Pulau Lang Tengah is an island in Terengganu in Malaysia, featuring sandy white beaches and clear blue waters with plenty of fish and coral. Lang Tengah - "the Eagle in the Middle" - gets its name from its location between the Perhentian Islands and Redang Island

Boats are sent from the resorts to pick up tourists at the Merang jetty in Kuala Terengganu. Pickup is usually in the morning until noon.

Get around

Lang Tengah has no roads; travel around the island is by boat, kayak or just by snorkeling. The waters surrounding the island are shallow. Large boats are not allowed to dock at the beaches. Tourists must transfer from larger ferries to smaller speedboats to reach the beach.
