Beaches (4 out of 5)
Beautiful white powdery beaches, soft sand. Mostly clean. There are two beaches on the island, with Pantai Pasir Air arguably being the more beautiful one. This beach is very long, with incredibly clear waters.

Diving (3 out of 5)
Lang Tengah has some lovely diving, depths ranging from 5-26m, visibility ranging from 5-40m. One can see many turtles in these waters, and if lucky one can spot a whale shark or manta ray. Corals are in good conditions, especially due to small numbers of visitors to this island.

Snorkeling (4 out of 5)
Good snorkeling off the beaches. Shallow calm waters. Batu June off the left side of Pantai Pasir Air is great for snorkeling, teaming with fish, and hard and soft corals. Also good chance to see turtels and perhaps even a harmless reef shark.
