Labuan is a group of small islands in eastern Malaysia, located about 8km off the coast of Sabah at the mouth of Brunei Bay. Labuan comprises the main island of Labuan and six smaller islets, namely Pulau Kuraman, Pulau Daat, Pulau Rusukan Besar, Pulau Rusukan Kecil, Pulau Papan and Pulau Burung. Once part of the Sultanate of Brunei, the islands were ceded to the British in 1846, and they remained under British rule for over 100 years. Now a Federal Territory of Malaysia, Labuan enjoys a strategic location that's close to major shipping routes and offshore oil and gas fields. A thriving duty-free port, it is Malaysia's only deepwater anchorage.
