Pulau Penuba is a small Indonesian island (11km by 4km) in the Lingga Archipelago, which lies south of Riau Archipelago, which in turn is just 125 km south of Singapore. It is part of Riau Islands Province. Historically, the Sultanate of Johor, with capital on Bintan Island (a Riau island SE of Singapore) was formally divided in 1824 – the British side of Johor (south Malaya) and Singapore (British) to the north of Singapore Strait, and the Dutch side of Riau to the south. The Dutch side is now part of Indonesia. Sumatra lies 70km to the west of Penuba. While the Riau Archipelago has seen recently a boom in industry and tourism, the Lingga Islands are rarely visited on account of the poor transport links with the outside world.

Penuba Island lies 30 km south of the equator. On one of its old Dutch administrative buildings you’ll see the motto: “Penuba: Remote but not left behind (forgotten).” It was on Penuba that the first flag of the new Republic of Indonesia was raised in 1945. And the tradition is repeated annually on the island.

The island has small fishing settlements on the north and south coasts. The main village is Sembuang to the SE, and main industry is fishing and a little aquaculture. The shop/homes you’ll find in neat lines are simpler than those to the north in busy Riau. Some land in the SE is being cleared for sugar palm plantations. There are a number of fine beaches on the northern and southern coasts that lure intrepid tourists. The swimming is excellent, as is the snorkelling. For hikers, there’s an E-W road along the south coast, and a S-N that passes some interesting rock formations.
