Trip to Pulau Undan
My friends has offered me to join them fishing at Pulau Undan. Pulau Undan is the last Island in Melaka. Pulau Undan or Undan Island is one of the few Island in Melaka apart the famous Pulau Besar (Great Islands). No people live here except for the Lighthouse operator and the Radar Tower at the Island. The lighthouse at Pulau Undan was completed in 1880 during British rule in Malacca as a beacon to all the ships that past along Malacca coast. Now the Lighthouse is still in operation but with added second newer concrete tower (Radar tower) for shipping communications.
Undan Islands located about 15miles of the coast of Malacca and as the Island is very small, it is solely reachable by boat. Public are prohibited to enter both of the tower and its site. Camping and Fishing can be done here with permission from the authorities. Boats can be rent either from Umbai Jetty or Klebang Beach.
Undan Islands may be small but it still have interesting nature surroundings like white sandbank, corals and variety of fish like garoupa and parrotfish.
