Home / Holiday Destinations in Malaysia / PERAK: PANGKOR: LOVED BY LOCALS




Despite measuring just eight square kilometres, Pulau Pangkor (pulau is the Malay word for island) is one of the most popular beach getaways in Malaysia — among locals, that is.

Pangkor is one of the country’s most accessible islands, yet it is overwhelmingly the preserve of Malaysians, who head there every long weekend for a little rest and relaxation.

There is little in terms of nightlife but instead you’ll find uncrowded sandy beaches, a huge variety of amazing local cuisine and friendly people.

Where to stay: For a Malaysia holiday splurge, book a sea villa at the exclusive Pangkor Laut resort. This stunning one-of-a-kind property, part of the YTL group of hotels, has a small island all to itself. Or, try the Pangkor Island Beach Resort.

Getting there: There are direct flights to the island from Subang’s Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport via Kuala Lumpur, or it’s a 30 minute ferry ride from the town of Lumut
