Tanjung Sepat is a town in Kuala Langat district in Selangor, Malaysia. It is on the Straits of Malacca. Kampung Kundang is a village located nearby.

Tanjung Sepat is primarily a fishing town. Most of the inhabitants have some kind of connection to the fishing industry, although the relative importance of fishing to the economy is dwindling due to pollution in the Straits of Malacca. Many[who?] believed this is caused by the fact that the areas surrounding the town are known as the largest pig rearing area in the state. The non-controllable waste flowing to the sea produced not only stench but hardship for the fishing industry participants.

Tanjung Sepat is well known locally for its many seafood restaurants. The most famous dish is the seafood steamboat.
