Tenggiling is the Indonesian word for pangolin, a kind of anteater relatively common in this part of the world.
The island of Tenggiling has a lot going for it in the tropical beach paradise stakes. Not only is the island blessed with a breathtakingly beautiful beach, gorgeous white sand and gin-clear azure-colored water, it also has a solid covering of tropical rainforest, which has ensured Tenggiling is still in a virtually untouched state.
Indeed, the interior of the island has almost certainly not been fully explored by anyone to this day.
But there's more. Tenggiling is part of a cluster of islands, which includes Pulau Matak to the east. Tenggiling's sheltered location results in the island's water remaining mostly calm and pleasant year-round, ideal for the paradise beach get-away that Tenggiling is on its way of becoming, both for local weekenders and overseas holiday-makers.
To top it off, Tenggiling also has deep-water access just off the island, perfect for larger vessels, such as LOB diving outfits keen to take a well-earned breather from their busy scuba diving agenda. Tenggiling is just about ideal for a day of fun in the sun on a picture-perfect little island endowed with a picture-perfect bounty beach.
But best of all, Tenggiling lies a mere 30 minute speedboat ride away from Tarempa, the de facto capital of Anambas. Once you're in Tarempa, Tenggiling is just a short hop away. As they say, Tenggiling boleh :)
