Crab Island (Pulau Ketam) Tours

Crab Island (Pulau Ketam) is a small fishing community located off the coast of Klang in Malaysia. Divided into two villages, around 6000 people—mainly Chinese settlers—live here permanently, but you wouldn't be able to guess that from a glance on the street. There are no cars or motorcycles, and the only way to get around is by walking or cycling the narrow boardwalks that connect the island.

Visitors to Crab Island will experience the unique lifestyle of this small corner of the world, from its 'floating houses' perched on long wooden stilts above the mangrove swamps, to its renowned seafood cuisine. True to its name, the island is know for delicious fresh crab, as well as prawns and fish.

To get an insight into the history and culture of Pulau Ketam, book a full-day trip to Crab Island from Kuala Lumpur, or join a Pulau Ketam village tour that also includes a visit to Thean Hou Temple. Because the island is something of a haven for seafood fans, most tours include lunch as part of the deal.

Practical Info

If not arriving as part of an organized tour where transport is included, you can reach Crab Island by taking a ferry from the jetty at Port Klang. To reach the port from Kuala Lumpur, take a KTM Komuter train from KL Sentral to Pelabuhan Kelang.

Did You Know? Despite the recent rise in tourism, Pulau Ketam still gets most of its income from fishing; the island is strategically located in a key stopover point for fishermen en-route to the rich fishing territories beyond.
