It is an angler's paradise .... Teluk Lancang is an isolated bay on the northeastern coast of Pemanggil Island. Coconut trees grow with abundance amidst the tropical vegetation along the coast.

Towering majestically in the heart of Pemanggil Island, is a huge boulder known locally as Batu Buau, regarded as the sacred guardian of the island. On a clear day, this landmark is clearly visible from the south of Tioman Island which is 50 km away.Pemanggil Island is one of the 'must visit' fishing paradise.

In Malaysia's recent fishing competition organised by a leading newspaper company, Pemanggil Island was nominated as one of the best fishing spots in the country. Among the favorite game fish is the Black Marlin, however it is quite rare to catch it. Only the real lucky ones get it ... good luck. The island is well known for deep sea fishing and good hunting grounds for marlins and tenggiri (mackerel). However it also possesses other charms such as endless stretch of white sandy beaches and many good locations for snorkeling. As the island is still not known, the corals are almost untouched and the waters are free of pollution. This remote island is famous for its beauty and abundance of marine life within its clear emerald waters.

Pemanggil, situated next to Tioman, requires a 4 to 5 hour boat ride from Mersing, which is the jump off point from the mainland. Along the journey if you're an avid angler, drop a line and start fishing right away! One will never be disappointed with the catch.
