Pangkor, with its charming mix of fishing settlements and resorts, is a fascinating and charming holiday destination. It presents the visitor with a rare chance to live near fishermen and observe their lifestyle and also to simply enjoy the fine beaches and resort amenities. The islands are accessed either by a 3 hour drive from KL and a 40 minute ferry journey or by a flight from Subang Airport in KL.
Pangkor’s two popular beach areas of Pasir Bogak and Teluk Nipah offer sun and sea enthusiasts activities like scuba-diving, snorkelling, wind-surfing and fishing. While Pasir Bogak is quite developed, Teluk Nipah still retains its kampung or village atmosphere. Teluk Ketapang or Turtle Bay still receives turtles on their egg-laying pilgrimages. There are a few accommodation options available but for a real treat Pangkor Laut Resort, situated on a private island, is in our opinion one of the finest resorts anywhere in the world. This one-of-a-kind resort nestles comfortably into its jungle island habitat, offering guests beautifully appointed accommodation.
