Malacca Island (Malay: Pulau Melaka) is a man-made island approximately 0.5 km off the coast of Malacca City, the capital city of the Malaysian state of Malacca, just south of its business district. It is part of the “Twin Island City Centre” waterfront project undertaken by Pulau Kembar Sdn Bhd (formerly Inno Enhance Sdn Bhd), a subsidiary of Talam Corporation Berhad, which involves the reclamation of two islands measuring 40ha and 50ha respectively. The reclamation of the first island of 40ha and a 30m bridge linking to the mainland had been completed.

The Malacca Island development was planned to comprise a floating mosque, 4,387 units of residential and 4,180 units of mixed commercial development together with leisure-cum-tourism amenities such as marine theme park, marina, hotels and waterfront activities.[1][2]


  • Malacca Straits Mosque - A mosque built on top of columns above the water, with a lighthouse-like minaret, located on the southern shore of the island.
