Pangkor Island Beach Guide
Here is a selection of the best beaches on Pangkor Island.
Pasir Bogak – 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. Enjoy a picnic in the shade or relax over a cold drink at one of the beachside restaurants.
Teluk Ketapang – Just 2km further north lies the pretty white-sand beach of Teluk Ketapang (Turtle Bay), a quiet alternative to Pasir Bogak Beach. The beach is named for the increasingly rare giant leatherback turtles that often lay their eggs there.
Pasir Giam Beach – This small crescent of perfect white sand faces the pretty island of Giam, which is easy to reach during low tide.
Teluk Nipah – This wide bay offers several beach resorts, food stalls and a smooth and wide beach that shelves into crystal clear water. 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 Bay, probably the best beach on west coast of the island.
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. With rocky headlands and crystal clear, emerald-green water, this is probably the best beach on Pangkor Island for snorkelling.
Teluk Belanga – Located on the northern coast, this wide, 1.2km-long crunchy white-sand beach spans the whole bay. It fronts the Pangkor Island Beach Resort, which offers a range of water- and land-based activities.
Teluk Dalam – This crescent of white sand is fringed by virgin jungle and fronts the Teluk Dalam Resort, which offers a wide range of activities just a short walk from the beach.
