Rebak Marina Langkawi
The Rebak Marina is located at the island Pulau Rebak Besar which is one of the 99 islands of Langkawi and separated from the main island by 5kms. The 389 acres Rebak Island is privately owned by Taj Group of India and located off the western shores of the Lankawi's main island. It takes about 15 minutes boat ride from the main island to reach Rebak Island.
The marina here is one of the few fully equipped ones in the whole of Malaysia and has dry dock. Rebak island is full of lush rainforest and surrounded my emerald green waters of Andaman Sea which is teeming with many different marine life and is ideal for water sports. Overall the island and the marina is quite picturesque, quiet and peaceful. The Rebak Island Resort run by the Taj Group is located next to the Marina and provides five star accommodations and amenities.
The harbor and the marina at Rebak Island are protected from the elements. The marina can accommodate yachts up to 35-meter long in wet and dry berths. However the entrance and channel to approach the Rebak Marina is quite narrow. The harbor has a minimum depth of 2.5 meters during low tide. So navigating through the channel can be sometimes quite tricky particularly when the strong south west wind flows.
