The gorgeous island of Paulau Langkawi, located north-west of Kuala Lumpur, boasts one of only two marinas in the whole of Malaysia that are capable of berthing superyachts (the other can be found on the secluded private island of Rebak).
But don’t let the lack of moorings put you off. Both of these marinas are within easy reach via a direct flight from Kuala Lumpur, and, what’s more, with the jewel-like islands of the South Asian Seas tantalizingly within your reach, there is no better excuse to explore these untouched natural wonders.
A stone’s throw away from the Langkawi airport, Telega Harbor is Malaysia’s answer to St Tropez. Built to encourage Langkawi as a major sailing destination, the harbor is capable of berthing 160 yachts and can cater for all travelers’ needs.
The Perdana Quay boats some high-end restaurants – where patrons relax at the quayside enjoying alfresco dining amidst luxury superyachts – surrounded by picturesque mountains.

Accessible only by boat from Langkawi, the island of Palau Rebak is a small private haven.
A calm and sheltered marina basin that’s free of surge or wake, this first-class marina facility can accommodate vessels up to 98 feet (30 meters) in 189 wet and 70 dry berths. With recently upgraded amenities, and the adjacent Rebak Island, the marina offers beauty, relaxation and an unforgettable experience.
