Pulau Pangkor (Malaysia)

Pulau Pangkor (Malaysia)



Off the coast of perak State, north of Selangor , lies a cluster of fabulous islands with unquestionably some of the best coves and beaches on the western coast of peninsular Malaysia.
Among them, two islands predominate in terms of accessibility, infrastructure and development - the largest island, Pangkor and her sister Pangkor Laut.
Those who are not familiar with the geographical locations generally confuse the two.

Pulau Pangkor is separated from the mainland by Selat Dinding (Dinding Channel), about 1 mile wide but navigable only over a reported width of about 0.2 mile.
The island is very hilly and densely wooded.
The W coast of Pulau Pangkor is deeply indented, forming several bights, with the largest being on the SW side.
