Lonely Pangkor is famous for its fine beaches and a mix of low budget to 5 star accommodations. Teluk Nipah and Coral Bay on the north west of the Island is extremely popular with backpackers. I’ve stayed couple of times at Teluk Nipah. To go there from the island’s jetty, you need to take the local public transportation, the Pink Taxi. They’ll charge you MYR10 per van, so it’s better if you share it with other strangers going to the same place.

Other than the beach, the island is also famous for its Hornbills. It’s just everywhere and every late evening around 6 pm, at Teluk Nipah there will be one guy whistling, calling for the Hornbills for feeding time. Onlookers have the chance to feed and take pictures of the birds.

There’re lots of other things to shoot and activities you could do while you’re here. Such as water sports, rent a bike or bicycle, visit temples and other tourist sightseeing or just lay on the beach all day long to get that tan you’ve been dreaming of.
