Now, no beach holiday is ever complete with coconut trees admist a backdrop of white sand and blue waters right? I was really glad that Lang Tengah had all of that , complete with deck chairs under those trees. It was definitely an open invitation to unwind...
Lang Tengah's main attraction is its sea. The water is clear and there are many fishes and corals in the sea. You have the option to go snorknelling around the island. The boat departs every morning 9.30am from the resort. You can also snorknel in waters in front of the resort. I got to see clams, rock fish, beautiful squid dancing in the water, some baby sharks, turtles, etc.
There are more colourful fishes at the place. You get to see giant garoupa, murray eels, friendly fishes and the fishes are not afraid to swim near you.
For only RM$5 per adult, it's worth the trip there!
This island have wonderful corals...You get to see the Blue Corals..which look like a huge bluish purple brocolli .. Lots of triggerfishes and parrotfishes.... I saw butterflyfishes, rabbit fishes, groupers, gobbies, baby sharks, turtles and some that I don't know the names.
The water was clear and we were definitely unprepared for the amount of corals. From the beach to as far as we dared swim out, the seabed was a tangled growth of all sorts of corals. We have round disc like corals, cylindrical corals, mossy corals and the common tree branch-like corals. In short, it was amazing.
The marine life around the island was also unbelievable, prompting one of us to quip that it was like an aquarium, except we were swimming in it! Oh, you'll definitely see lots of fishes, eels, sea cucumbers, sea urchins and more. If you're lucky, you will catch a glimpse of Hawksbill and Green Turtles as well as black-tip sharks. Some of the fishes will come and nibble at you though so don't say we didn't warn you if you get molested by a school of colorful fish! If you'll like to create a feeding frenzy, you can obtain a slice of bread from the restaurant and scatter the pieces into the ocean.
Just be prepared with a camera to catch the chaos of fishes! The depth of the water is a nice gentle slope out to about thirty or so meters and then it starts getting deeper quite fast. However, from where we were (which was quite far out), there seems to be an undersea shelf so it doesn't really get much deeper. Unless you are scuba-diving there's nothing much to do snorkelling that far out.
The resort organize snorkelling and diving trips for guest. There is a dive centre at the resort, however, it is not well equipped.
The beaches around Lang Tengah are full of marine life.
While snorkelling we saw, turtle, nemo (clown fish), goby/blenny, needlefish, etc.
Sunrise is from around 7 am (6+ am maybe if you trek to the other side of the jungle)
Sunset is from around 6.40 pm
As the sun slowly dies in the horizon, it sends out a last glow of orangey light. Slowly, that dims too and the sky at Lang Tengah is covered in streaks of blue and purple.
Somehow, all that lazing under the coconut trees ends all too soon and the sun starts to set in the horizon. But you're rewarded with a achingly beautifully picture of the sunset at Lang Tengah.
As you sit on those deck chairs, gaze at the coconut leaves and blue skies once in a while, it is strangely hynoptic and relaxing. Ah..time simply doesn't exist in Lang Tengah.
Ah... with a sight like this, lazing around in Lang Tengah is a must. Just sit down on one of those deck chairs and be part of the postcard-perfect scenary ...
If you miss out on snorkeling while you are at P. Lang Tengah, you haven't really been there! Great experience to see real corals and swim with the fishes.
