Pangkor Island Travel Guide

Located off the west coast of peninsular Malaysia to the south of Penang, Pangkor Island can be overlooked as travellers rush to Penang and Langkawi. However, this is a shame! This little island could be the perfect place for your Malaysian beach break.

An easy ferry ride from the mainland, on Pangkor (or Pulau Pangkor) you’ll find ruins of a 17th-century Dutch fort and plenty of beaches and snorkelling opportunities.
