Pangkor Island is surrounded by seas which means that you get to mostly enjoy a lot of water sports and activities. The beaches here are outlined by pearly-white sands while you can indulge in a lot of other things to do as well.

Seaside – The beaches would be the most popular places to go in Pangkor Island. What you get is some of the most spectacular views of the surroundings but there are certain spots which can be quite dirty which means you have to be mindful of where to go.

Coral Bay – Around the west coastal side of the island, the green-coloured water could well be your main attraction. If you are here for the romance of the island, the sunset would be totally breath-taking and unforgettable.

Pasir Bogak – Perhaps the most popular beach in Pangkor Island. You will see crowds coming around during the peak season with a lot going into the waters for a dip. It is actually the first developed-beaches here while picnics are quite common too. If there is one place you want to go for the seaside, Pasir Bogak is THE place.

Teluk Nipah – There are quite a number of places to eat and interest around here. However, a lot of development has been going on around the beach side which means you could well be looking at more buildings than trees.
