As you approach the island you’re mesmerised by its inviting emerald-green waters, beckoning you to dive in and see what wonders it beholds. Pulau Pemanggil is a sequestered island and is one of the furthest off the Mersing coast.
The island has only one resort, the Lanting Beach Resort which sits tucked away on a hillside on the island. Revered as a fishing location, the waters off Pemanggil are home to many sport fish such as marlin, sailfish and mackerel. Diving, snorkelling and Jet Ski facilities are also offered at the resort. Even if you are not a morning person, waking up early to watch the dark sky slowly turn to hues of orange as the sun rises is an absolute must. Take note that some areas of the resort are accessed by very steep stairs, which may be difficult for the elderly and young children. As Pulau Pemanggil lies 45 kilometres East of Mersing, the journey by catamaran takes 90 minutes whereas taking the slow boat triples travel time.
