In maritime terms, Port Klang actually consists of three distinct ports. The port nearest to Port Klang town is known as the South Port. There is also a North Port and the newly developed Westport located on an island just off the coast of Port Klang.
Pulau Ketam (Crab Island) is a mangrove covered island off the coast of Port Klang. The entire village is built on stilts and makes for an interesting day trip. About 15 ferries per day (RM7 one way, 45 min, the last boat from the island leaves at 5.30PM on weekdays and at 6PM on weekends and holidays) run from the Pulau Ketam jetty beside (and not inside) the Passenger Cruise Terminal. The island is popular at weekends as people from as far as Kuala Lumpur make the trip for good seafood.
