So, let's have a look at the Pangkor beaches! The biggest swimming pool in the world, Pasir Bogak

Pasir Bogak Beach

Pantai Pasir Bogak is a few kilometers away from Pangkor Town on the West side of the island. This beach is probably the most popular of the Pangkor beaches. Maybe it is because it is so close to Pangkor Town. It has been described as 'the biggest swimming pool in the world'. True or not I can not say. However, the water is shallow and crystal clear. You will be able to arrange water-sport-facilities as jet-skiing, snorkeling or rent a canoe. All along the beach there are open-air food-stalls offering specialties such as barbecued squids, satay and fish crisps. Accommodation is easily available, ranging from luxury hotels, chalets to the more Spartan comforts of 'attap' huts and camping sites.

Teluk Nipah Beach

Of all the Pangkor beaches, Teluk Nipah or Nipah Beach is the most beautiful. This beach is located a few kilometers north Pantai Pasir Bogak. The beach is secluded and is able to maintain its natural beauty. Pulau Giam with Coral Bay in the background. Unlike other beaches, it has corals, sea cucumber and bird lovers can find the hornbill (burung Enggang) on this beach. Conveniently people forget that Teluk Nipah is in fact TWO beaches: Nipah Beach and Coral Bay. Nipah Bay Beach has a beautiful view on two small islands called Pulau Giam and Pulau Mentagor. Both of these islands are not inhabited although you might find locals willing to bring you there. It is said that when the tide is out you can even walk to Giam Island although I have never done that. Giam is mostly interesting for snorkeling. The waters are shallow. I haven't seen much corals here and there's plenty of fish to see. Both of these island have beaches too. If you're really for some exercise, you can rent kayaks for a paddle out to these islands.There are hotels and resorts in the middle and lower-ranged budgets around Nipah Bay. In between the beach and the hotels there are small local stalls where, like Pantai Pasir Bogak you can try some of the local specialties. Typical souvenir shops are also available.

Teluk Ketapang Beach

Teluk Ketapang, an exotic beach at Pangkor IslandTeluk Ketapang is sandwiched between the two more well known beaches of Pasir Bogak and Nipah Bay. There's no place to stay at Teluk Ketapang but believe me, the beach is very nice. A large green grass field lies next to the main road and separates the sand beach from the road. It's a great place for a swim and a view on the Straits of Malacca. There may be some boatsmen hanging around the pier and if you interested, they will give you a tour around the island.Of all the Pangkor beaches, this one is the most underrated. Give it a try. Even in school holidays this beach is mostly empty.

Teluk Segadas Beach

The beach of Teluk Segadas, a virgin beach at Pulau Pangkor. Teluk Segadas is one of the little known gems on Pulau Pangkor. Few people, including me until recently, know about this little beach. Teluk Segadas is a bit difficult to find. First of all, there's no road to this beach. You have to take a taxi to Teluk Gedong.You will find the path at the board "Teluk Gedung". There's a path going into the hills which leads you directly to Teluk Segadas, In fact it's short jungle trek of about 15 minutes.There's a bit of climbing included. Bring food and water as there are no vendors at this beach (you don't need a guide as the path is straightforward). In general the beach is abandoned so you have it all for yourself. In the bay the water is calm and not too deep, excellent for playing and swimming. Together with a little breeze this makes Teluk Segadas the best Pangkor beaches.

Puteri Dewi Beach

Just another few kilometers further north of Nipah Beach lies Pantai Puteri Dewi in the Belanga Bay. It's just near Pangkor's airport. The name Pantai Puteri Dew means literally Beach of the Lovely Princess. Access to the beach is restricted to guests of Pangkor Island Beach Resort.

It is a bright white sand beach with crystal clear water. There's some beautiful corals to see so don't forget your snorkel. You can rent boats and snorkels at the hotel.

What is the attraction of Pulau Pangkor?
So, what can you do at Pulau Pangkor? You can go to one of the beaches and enjoy the tropical sun. But in the heat of the day, you may want to hire a boat for sea fishing or jet skiing. Don't forget to bring your snorkel, they can be rented at the hotels. We have made a selection of Pangkor hotels at and around Pulau Pangkor. The list include our favorite the Pangkor Island Beach Resort which is located at the northern side of Pangkor island. This list contains hotels we recommend. We have personally checked the hotels and found them for various reason great. 

Pangkor Island is located just off the coast of North West Malaysia. This Malaysian island is about 300 km North from the country capital Kuala Lumpur. Pangkor island is about 200 km South of Penang and 70 km South-West of Perak's capital Ipoh.
 
A brief history of Pulau Pangkor
 
There is not much known about the origins of the inhabitants of Pangkor. The local inhabitants believed that the island was protected by the spirits, so they called Pulau Pangkor the Spirit Island.Another name for Pulau Pangkor in the old days was Dinding, which means 'screen' or 'partition'. This was in reference to the position of the island as it protects the mainland's estuary.Over the years the island was frequently visited by pirates who were roaming the seas around the island. They robbed boats in the Straits of Malacca and hide themselves on the hills on the island. The names of Batu Lanun meaning Pirates' Cave and Batu Perompak meaning Pirates' Rock echo the memory of the pirates.When the Dutch came in 1670, they build a Fort of which the remains still stand. Dutch records referred to it as the Dindings fort ('Dingdingh') - named after the Dindings River which it faced on the coast of the Peninsula.
 
Despite the presence of the fort the tin-smuggling continued. In 1690 the Dutch left since local leaders frequently attacked the fort. In 1743 the fort was rebuilt but the Dutch did not stay long. Soon after, early 19th century, the British came. With their arrival, the island was renamed to Pulau Kera meaning Monkey Island. There's still many monkeys on the Pangkor. Later Pulau Kera was renamed into Pulau Aman (Peaceful Island) and then into Pulau Pangkor (Beautiful island).The fort was abandoned after it was attacked by a local warrior, Panglima Kulub, and his followers.
 
Muzium Negara (the National Museum) undertook its reconstruction in 1973. Today, only the stone walls and carvings on a large rock left by the soldiers remain. In front of the ruin there is a little park with a Dutch cannon. Another important event in the history of Pangkor was the so-called Pangkor Treaty of 1874. The Pangkor Treaty of 1874 was a treaty signed between the Sir Andrew Clarke on behalf of the British and Raja Abdullah of Perak. It was signed on January 20, 1874 at Pulau Pangkor off Perak. Thus, the name of the agreement. The treaty is significant in the Malay states history because it signaled the British official involvement in the Malay states' policies.
 
The first British Resident was J.W.W. Birch and he was not much loved by the Malays. In November 1875 Birch was assassinated. This was the start for the fight for independence that eventually came in 1963. Even today Birch is remember bitterly. In Ipoh you will find a clock tower dedicated to him, erected by the British and more or less hidden. . But it is in Pasir Salak where the full story comes to life. Pasir Salak was the kampong where Birch was killed. In the Pasir Salak complex you will find a memorial for Birch too. In the 1960's and 70's , the name 'Pangkor' was synonymous with salted fish, ikan bilis produce, dried shrimps, shrimp paste etc. Kids grew up on 'Satay Fish', a delicious snack made of barbecued and caramelized fish wafers. Those were the days when the packaging was secondary to the content and hygiene was not of utmost priority.
 
In Pangkor Town you will find many shops stuffed with all sorts of products from the sea. The supply comes, of course, from the local villages. Nowadays the packages are vacuum sealed but once it was different. The satay fish, dried jellyfish (!) and dried squid are delicious though some find the smell a bit stinky. With the development of Malaysia, and in particular Perak and Pangkor, the tourist industry found its way into Perak and Pangkor too. Perak has nowadays several tourist destinations: Taiping with the Taiping Zoo, Ipoh and Kuala Kangsar are only a few of the tourist centers. If you consider going to one of these cities, you may want to check Perak hotels for a good hotel.
