Pangkor Island is a group of islands situated in Perak off the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Pangkor being the main island of the cluster, other small islands include Pangkaur Laut, Mentagor Island and Giam Island. Most of the interior of this mountainous resort island is covered by a lush jungle.
Pangkor Island has everything packed for a refreshing vacation right from a vibrant Chinatown to quiet lovely beaches. Trek lovers will find the uphill trek through the jungle quite overwhelming. Also, Pangkor Island's many beaches including Coral and Nipah are ideal for water sports like snorkelling and parasailing.
While the east coast is where are the local people live, the west coast of Pangkor Island is popular for tourist accommodations. Since fishing is the main occupation here, savoury fish dishes abound at the beach shacks and restaurants. While scooters, jet skis, kayaks and canoes are available for rent, those looking for a divinely relaxing time, can simply grab a coconut drink, sunbathe and enjoy the glorious sunset at Pangkor Island beaches.
