The Straits of Malacca, lying between Sumatra and Peninsular Malaysia, is arguably the most important shipping lane in the world. The west coast of Malaysia attracts the most cruising yachts and there is plenty to see, from the attractive old city of Malacca and the fishing port of Lumut to the islands of Penang and Langkawi. The Langkawi islands, the only Duty Free island in the region, lies close to the border with Thailand and possesses the finest scenery anywhere in Malaysian waters and has become the most visited destination by superyachts in Malaysia. Langkawi also has excellent superyacht refit facilities. The best weather is during the NE monsoon when the west coast provides an excellent lee and most yachts cruise up the coast from Singapore to Thailand. Sabah and Sarawak along the northern coast of Kalimantan are visited by yachts en route to or from the Philippines and Hong Kong. Kota Kinabalu, on the island of Borneo in East Malaysia is also an attractive destination for superyachts. Sipadan, part of East Malaysia, is also a world famous destination well worth visiting. Sabah’s cruising waters from Labuan to Tawau offer some of the most spectacular and beautiful waters, islands and mainland attractions in South East Asia. Visitors can combine the delights of crystal clear waters, tropical islands and mainland coastal bays, some of the world’s greatest dive sites, including world class Sipadan island and Layang-Layang, and extraordinaryly diverse mainland beauty – the highest mountain in South East Asia, virgin rainforest conservation areas, waters, canyons, exotic wildlife, flora and fauna, and myriad adventure and eco-tourism activities – all accessible as a day or overnight excursion from your yacht.
