Pulau Tuba

Islands around Langkawi

Pulau Tuba is a beautiful, remote island located 5 km southwest of Kuah Jetty. It has a traditional fishing village, rare wildlife and plants, as well as a number of homestays. It’s also the only inhabited islet in the area, aside from the main Langkawi Island, and is reachable via a 20-minute boat ride from Kuah Jetty. Many island-hopping tours include a visit to Pulau Tuba, but be sure to check with the company before booking one.

Villagers live a relatively traditional lifestyle on the island, where they often venture into the forest-covered hills to gather medicinal herbs, fruits, and honey, when not fishing and farming. If you’re looking to experience the village life, Malaysia’s Fisheries Development Authority offer homestay programmes, where you get to stay with a host family on Pulau Tuba.
