Indah Island (Pulau Indah) is an island off the west coast of Selangor, Malaysia, formerly known as Lumut Island. Malaysia's largest port, West Port, Port Klang, is on the island.

Prior to the completion of the new Westport Bridge linking the island with Telok Gong, the only mode of transportation for the Lumut Island inhabitants was a regular one-hour ferry service to Port Klang Terminal. The bridge provides access from Kuala Lumpur, Shah Alam and Klang, and the Selat Lumut-SKVE Bridge of the SKVE expressway (from Kajang, Putrajaya, Puchong, Banting and Carey Island.

In addition to West Port, Indah Island primarily contains Indah Island 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.

Indah Island had significant mangrove swamps, but most of the mangroves were lost by 1999 for the development of West Port and industrial estates.[1][2]
