Pangkor: The Enchanting Island

Stroll along the palm-fringed beaches as the melody of the sea serenades your senses.  Have a splashing good time with scuba diving, windsurfing, fishing, snorkelling and a host of fun-filled activities.  Or feel the cool breezes and soak up the warmth of Malaysian friendliness.

Pangkor Island is one of the most enchanting islands in Malaysia.  Accessible by a one hour-flight or a 4-hour drive from Kuala Lumpur, Pangkor Island is peaceful and tranquil with palm trees swaying in the breeze, calm turquoise sea, golden beaches and cool breezes.

Amidst the island is a 5 star-resort – Pangkor Laut Resort, one of the world’s premier resorts nestling in the primeval forests.  At the resort the glistening blue sea gently laps the shores of golden beaches in secluded bays which nestle under clear blue skies.  The combination of birdsong in the background, the sound of the gentle lapping waves and the absence of the hustle and bustle of daily living create a tremendous ambience of peacefulness and tranquillity: you might imagine that you are in heaven!  With luxury, beauty and century-old wilderness woven into the fabric of Pangkor Island, you can be assured of an ultimate exotic getaway.

Pangkor Island is famed for its wealth of rainforest which provides great opportunities for jungle trekking, wildlife spotting, bird watching, river cruising and more.  Get a rare glimpse at the exotic crab-eating macaque monkeys, tropical monitor lizards and yellow pied hornbills.

Visit the Spa Village at Pangkor Laut Resort to experience the ultimate luxurious serene setting where you can relax, unwind and pamper yourself with an aromatherapy body massage, a spa, foot reflexology or one of the big ranges of healing and relaxing treatments available.  For a little adventure, go cruising at some of the idyllic bays nearby and laze around while enjoying a picnic lunch in the privacy of the secluded bay.

If you are a cultural lover, set your sights on the culture of rustic Malay fishing village and observe the lifestyle of the fishermen there.  If you are lucky, you can catch your own fish and get the local restaurant to prepare a sumptuous dish from your own catch!

Pangkor Island is as enchanting as its name.  The splendor of its beaches make it an exciting destination for many fun-filled sea activities, from windsurfing, scuba diving, snorkelling, swimming or just dipping in the-sea!

With so much enchantment, Pangkor Island is truly a feast to the senses and an exotic getaway in every way!
