Pulau Tenggol or Tenggol Island is an island off the coast of Terengganu, Malaysia. It is the last island in a string of islands that include Pulau Perhentian and Pulau Redang. It is connected by ferry to Dungun on the mainland.

The island was traditionally uninhabited, but now contains hotels. Vietnamese boat people were stranded on the island in aftermath of the Vietnam War.
