Pulau Pangkor ( Pangkor Island )

Situated just off the west coast of Perak, it is one of the most enchanting islands you'll ever come across.

Pangkor has for centuries enthralled visitors with her charming beauty.  In days of old, she was the refuge of seam en who sailed though the Straits of Malacca.

Pangkor's many idyllic bays made it the perfect stopover. Pirates, adventures, merchants and soldiers of fortune sought the peace and tranquility she had to offer.

In stark contrast to Malaysia's fast-paced progress, Pangkor remains a haven for those seeking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Soak up the sun on her golden beaches.  Catch sight of fishing boats rocking gently on calm blue waters.

Get closer to nature as you trek though virgin jungles or experience the warm, friendly hospitality of her people.  Whichever you choose, Pangkor awaits you.

Pangkor Island    
The main island of Pangkor is mainly populated by fisherfolk who occupy the eastern coastline.

The island is famous for its 'ikan bilis' (anchovies) and squids.

The real attraction here however are the enchanting beaches on the western coastline Pantai Puteri Dewi, Teluk Belanga, Teluk Nipah and Pasir Bogak.

Among these, the quiet coves and untrodden bays at Tortoise Bay, Teluk Nipah and Teluk Cempedak are marvellous for swimming or just basking in the sun, in complete privacy amidst tranquil surroundings.

'Fantasy Island' of the East.

Things To See And Do    

A spectacular shoreline.

  Amidst such beauty and tranquillity, one tends to suddenly feel relaxed and lethargic - too lazy for any kind of activity. However, when there is so much to see and do, it is soon time to get up and go.

One of the best way to see the island is to go on a round island trip by taxi. The trip costs approximately RM25.00 -RM30.00. As you travel around the coastal roads, you will see quaint Malay villages with wooden houses on stilts under the shade of coconut trees.

Now and then, you'll catch glimpses of the white sand and the shimmering blue sea. In the forests, you may chance upon the shy deer or playful monkeys darting among the branches.

Stop at Pangkor, the little picturesque town of narrow streets and corner coffee shops. The Nyonya marble topped tables and antique clocks gracing the walls, contribute to its old world charm.

Take a leisurely stroll to the port and watch the fishing boats return with their fresh catch. See how the fish are packed in ice before being dispatched to the mainland.
Wander off to the fishing villages and see how the fishermen pull in their nets from the sea, nets filled with wriggling fish, the bountiful harvest from the deep. Join their happy laughter, listen to their happy songs - be a part of it all!

Kota Belanda.

  For a bit of history, visit the old Dutch Fort at Teluk Gedung. Built in 1670, it was used for storing tin and was one of the Dutch strongholds against pirates and local Malays, Today, only the stone foundations remain to remind us of the power they once exercised over the area.

If your main interest is the sea and water-based activities, then take your pick from the many beautiful beaches around. Pantai Puteri Dewi (Beach of the Lovely Princess) is a lovely stretch of beach of fine white sand and shimmering blue sea, on the fringes of lush green tropical forests. A resort in this curving wide bay provides ample accommodation in an elegant cosmopolitan setting.
Pasir Bogak is the largest and most popular beach on the island. The beach is crescent shaped and numerous shady trees provide idyllic picnic spots under the canopy of their lush foliage. The water is shallow and crystal clear, offering endless hours of fun and frolic in the sunlit sea. There are facilities for boating, fishing and snorkelling.

Teluk Nipah is an enchanting secluded bay on the west coast, accessible only by bicycle or motorcycle from Pasir Bogak and Teluk Belanga.

An ideal tranquil getaway.
