Teluk Nipah,Pulau Pangkor Perak Malaysia

4

Pulau Pangkor is an island off the coast of Perak in north-west peninsular Malaysia, reached by ferry from Lumut (a small coastal town that links to Ipoh, or from Sitiawan). It is heavily promoted as a low-key tourist destination by the Malaysian government, but fishing and fish products remain major industries. The name Pangkor actually originates from the Thai word 'Pang Ko' meaning 'Beautiful Island'

Pangkor is famous for its fine beaches and a mix of low budget to 5 star accommodations.But the chalets, restaurants and motels that line in the streets even in the small alleyways it’s jam-packed with tourists during the peak seasons,

Souvenir shops and budget hotels line the street along the beach so this is a good place for backpackers to stay and explore the island for a few days Teluk Nipah and Coral Bay on the north west of the island is extremely popular with travellers from Malaysia and Europe. The quality of sand is far more superior in the Pasir Bogak Beach as compared to elsewhere on the island. The sand is golden brown, quite similar to most leading prime beaches.

Teluk Nipah or Nipah Bay is the biggest, if not the busiest beach on Pulau Pangkor. Off Nipah Bay is Pulau Giam and Coral Bay, where visitors can snorkel and enjoy the coral outcrops in the shallow waters. There will be lots of tour operators nearby who offer these trips for a bit of money.
