Pulau Indah ("Indah Island") is an island in Klang District, Selangor, Malaysia, formerly known as Pulau Lumut. Malaysia's largest port, West Port, Port Klang, is on the island.

There are two bridges linking the island to the mainland: the Pulau Indah Expressway Jkr-ft181.png bridge which is an extension of the KESAS E5 after Pandamaran; and the SKVE E26 bridge which links Pulau Indah to Carey Island and to Teluk Panglima Garang. Prior to the completion of the bridges, the only mode of transportation for the island inhabitants was a regular one-hour ferry service to Port Klang Terminal.

There is a KTM station, connected to the rest of Port Klang Line by a bridge parallel to the Pulau Indah Expressway, but the station is for cargo use only and not open to passengers.

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

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