Actually at Melaka coast there are many Island. But the Island are small and not inhabited. Maybe only Pulau Besar got some people work there for the Hotel and Musuem, still don’t have permanent residents. Recently we visit some of the Island like Pulau Undan and Pulau Upeh. Maybe the State Government plan to develop the Island as a tourist atraction.
If you want to visit the Island, there are some Island hoping package like from the Explorer or Water Taxi from Melaka River Cruise. Also local fisherman can bring you there for a fishing trip.
