Pulau Upeh was once a look-out point for invading battleships during the Second World War. At other times, it served as a pirates stop-over and hide-out. Today, the island is one of the few sites in the west coast that has regular turtle sightings. Here you can observe the golden hawksbill turtles and their breeding habits on the beaches. Other attractions include the British Memorial Mast, an old well and World War II relics. Family-run, air-conditioned chalets are available for overnight accommodation. Water sports facilities like canoeing, winding-surfing, and jet-skiing are provided for a fee. To get there, catch a 45-minute boat ride from either the Shahbandar jetty or the jetty behind the State Tourist Information Centre.
