About Duyong Island
Pulau Duyong is a river island in the mouth of Terengganu River in the state of Terengganu, Malaysia. Previously, it was divided into Pulau Duyong Besar and the smaller Pulau Duyong Kecil, but sedimentation and reclamation have united it as well as changed its coastline substantially. A seaward extension has been developed into the Heritage Bay Resort which hosts the annual Monsoon Cup yacht race.
