Pangkor Island

Pangkor Island is in the Malaysian state of Perak, on the western side of Peninsular Malaysia, about half way between Kuala Lumpur and Penang. The closest mainland settlement is the town of Lumut, an attractive, laid-back place about seven kilometers away.
Pangkor is less well-known than Penang, Langkawi or Tioman, but don't let that put you off. 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 has five flights a week in both directions between Kuala Lumpur and the relatively new airport on Pangkor.
You can take a taxi, bus or rental car from Kuala Lumpur or Penang to the small town of Lumut (guarded car parks are available if you have your own car). From the Lumut pier, ferries depart regularly to different parts of Pangkor Island. Fares are just a few Ringgit, and the journey should take you no more than 45 minutes.
