Prior to the completion of the new Westport Bridge linking the island with Telok Gong, the only mode of transportation for the Pulau Lumut inhabitants were via a regular boat ferry service to Port Klang Terminal. The ride then took approximately 1 hour. Today, Pulau Indah is accessible through the aforementioned bridge (from Kuala Lumpur, Shah Alam and Klang) and the recently completed Selat Lumut-SKVE bridge of the SKVE expressway (from Kajang, Putrajaya, Puchong, Banting and Pulau Carey).
Pulau Indah primarily contains Westport (Malaysia's major port), Pulau Indah Industrial Park (including Selangor Halal Hub), four local villages (Kg. Perigi Nenas, Kg. Sungai Pinang, Kg. Sungai Kembong, Kg. Teluk Nipah), a seaside park (Laguna Park), a housing estate (Bandar Armada Putra), and the Malaysian Navy's Pusat Hidrografi Nasional.
