Salang is the northernmost village on the island of Tioman in Pahang, Malaysia. It is very small, yet popular with backpackers. It has a few bars, some dive shops and two main chalet complexes. Although the village itself is polluted, it is within close access to the best reef sites.

Salang is located close to the uninhabited "Monkey Bay" so named because monkeys are seen walking along the beach. There is also coral accessible from the beach although it can get a bit too shallow for snorkeling at low tide.
