Approximately 84 km south of lpoh is the quiet coastal town of Lumut.

Once a relatively unknown fishing town it has since acquired the proud distinction of being the home base of the Royal Malaysian Navy and the take-off point for the beautiful offshore islands in the Straits of Malacca.

Amidst all the bustle of development taking place around it, the town still retains its quiet charm.


Malaysia's Fantasy Island

Things To See And Do

Listed among its attractions are a park and a public garden.

A clock tower occupies an open space opposite the jetty for ferry boats to the islands. Some of these quaint boats are actually fishing trawlers, given a new coat of paint and a new identity.

Lumut is also known for its lovely shell and coral handicraft - a must for souvenir hunters.

The famous 'Pesta Laut' (sea festival) held between the months of August or September is an event celebrated by seaport competitions, cultural shows and funfairs. Join in the fun and revelry and see Lumut come alive in this annual event.
