Welcome to Pulau Pangkor

These days the only ruckus is from monkeys, hornbills – big-beaked birds that are abundant on Pangkor – and Malaysian weekend warriors. Few foreign visitors wash ashore, probably because the beaches aren’t Malaysia’s best.

Beyond resort centres such as Teluk Nipah and Pasir Bogar, there's a subdued, villagey feel. Stroll Sungai Pinang Kecil (SPK) or colourful Teluk Gedong to experience a slower pace…if you can bear to leave that hammock.
