Best Beaches on Pangkor Island

Pangkor Island offers a great choice of pretty beaches that typically host accommodation options from budget chalets to luxury resorts, including the following…

Teluk Belanga

Located on the north-west coast, this wide, 1.2km-long crunchy white-sand beach spans the whole bay and is surrounded by hills of virgin rain forest.

Teluk Belanga fronts the Pangkor Island Beach Resort, which offers a range of creature comforts as well as numerous water- and land-based activities.

Teluk Nipah

This wide bay offers several beach resorts, food stalls and a smooth and wide beach that shelves into crystal clear water.

The beach is home to several resorts including the Pangkor Bay View Beach Resort, which offers guests a wide range of water- and land-based activities.

A short walk north along the beach followed by a swim around the headland (or a climb over rocks at low tide) leads to Coral Beach, one of the best beaches (for snorkelling) on west coast of the island.

Pasir Giam Beach

This small crescent of perfect white sand faces the pretty island of Giam, which is easy to reach during low tide.

While walking across, look out for colourful corals and aquatic life including seaweeds and sea cucumbers.

The small island of Giam is very popular for snorkelling and for picnics.

Teluk Ketapang

The pretty white-sand beach of Teluk Ketapang (Turtle Bay) is a quiet alternative to Pasir Bogak Beach, which lies 2km further south.

The beach is named for the increasingly rare giant leatherback turtles that often lay their eggs there.

Pasir Bogak Beach

Make footprints on this palm-fringed white-sand beach that stretches in a narrow crescent around a turquoise bay that is just perfect for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and fishing.

Pasir Bogak Beach lies at the northern end of Coral Bay on the south-west coast of Pangkor Island. It's the most developed of Pangkor Island's beaches, playing host to several beachfront resorts, including the Pangkor Sandy Beach Resort and the Coral Bay Resort.

Enjoy a picnic in the shade or relax over a cold drink at one of the many restaurants.

Coral Bay

Discover a crescent of soft white sand fringed by dense jungle that reaches up the sides of Bukit Pangkor, one of the island's three peaks that sits on the south-west coast of Pangkor.

With rocky headlands and crystal clear, emerald-green water, this is probably the best region on Pangkor Island for snorkelling. Coral Bay is home to Pasir Bogak Beach as well as several resorts scattered around the bay.
