Tanjung Leman Beach
Watch white hornbills while enjoying the warm breeze on Pantai Tanjung Leman. 'A jumping off' point to the islands."
Tanjung Leman is better known as the ‘jumping off’ point to the islands of Pulau Sibu and Sibu Tengah. Located about 72km south of Mersing, the beach is quite far off from the main road, which makes it a little difficult to find. However, the beach is served by a jetty and chalets.
Kayaks are available for those wishing to venture out beyond the shoreline. Snorkelling is worthwhile as there are nice corals around. The beach is also a good spot to watch some white hornbills flying above.
Chairs and shades are plenty for those who just want to have a quick escape from the hustle and bustle of city life with families and friends.
From an aerial view, the island looks like a bird or a bat resting with its wings outstretched. Its calm and quiet ambiance makes it the perfect choice for those who dream of a relaxing and laid back vacation.
