|Pangkor Island is in Perak, on the west coast of peninsular Malaysia, about 100 km west of Ipoh and halfway between Kuala Lumpur and Penang.|
Although Pangkor is less well-known than Penang, Langkawi, and Tioman, the Perak state government is making efforts to promote it as one of Malaysia's main tourist destinations. It is a popular local resort and can get very crowded at weekends and on public holidays, however the beaches are almost empty during the week. It has some of the west coast's prettiest and most tranquil beaches, authentic Malaysian fishing villages that have changed little in 50 years, and some great local food (especially the seafood).
Berjaya Air provides thrice weekly flights from Pangkor Airport (IATA: PKG) to Subang Skypark (IATA: SZB) in Kuala Lumpur. Flights depart every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
With the recent development of the private resort island Marina Island Pangkor, you will now need to take a 7 min ferry ride to Pulau Pangkor saving you hours of waiting compared to the existing ferry services from Lumut. From the private jetty, ferries and private charters depart regularly to different parts of Pangkor Island. Since, it is a private resort, all ferry passengers must be a member of the resort to board the ferry services.
The first departure is at 7:15AM, the last is at 8:30PM. Departure are at hourly for the non-peak period and during peak periods departures are at 15 min intervals.
The existing and the oldest mainland settlement is the town of Lumut, an attractive, laid-back place about 7 km away. Buses from KL and other places will drop you off at the bus station next to the pier.
From the Lumut pier, ferries depart regularly to different parts of Pangkor Island. First departure from Lumut is at 7AM, last at 8:30PM. First departure from Pangkor is at 6:30AM, last at 8:30PM. Departures are at 30-45 min intervals, depending on the time of day, and the crossing usually takes no more than 45 min.
There are two major ferry stops for the residents in Pangkor island; the SPK Jetty in Sungai Pinang Kecil and the Pangkor Jetty in Pangkor Town. Tourists should stop by the 2nd pier, Pangkor Jetty as this is the main township in Pangkor Island and is closer to the various beaches on the west coast of the island.
The 3rd pier, the Pangkor Island Beach Resort Jetty (formerly Pan Pacific Jetty) at Teluk Dalam, is exclusively for guests of that hotel.
On the island, unmetered taxis (microvans) are widely available they are bright pink and are at the airport and in Pangkor Town once you get off the ferry, or ask your hotel to call one for you. Agree to the fare amount before starting your journey.
Motorbikes are readily available from many men who stand at the exit of the main jetty. Since they are unregulated, the cost will vary depending on your negotiating skills. Some may ask for a deposit, but if you quickly say no, they generally accept.
