Melaka is known for having many great weekend retreats and one of them is Pulau Besar which is a beautiful island located about ten miles away from the Malacca Port. Attractions found at this southeastern part of Melaka include some historic graves and also places which offered reminders of the Japanese occupation during World War II but the main attraction to Pulau Besar is the clean clear water found here which is suitable for swimming.


The lush surroundings of this hilly island add to its charm. Some of the popular activities here are camping, fishing, golfing, snorkeling and swimming. The Pandanusa Resort found on Pulau Besar is popular among tourists because of its 18-hole golf course and its luxury accommodations. Tourists wanting to have a game of golf can get here by traveling in a boat from Umbai jetty, Anjung Batu jetty or from the harbormaster's jetty in Malacca town.
