Tourism Attractions Places
Lin Fu Kong [Taoist Temple]
This Taoist temple, built at the foot of Pangkor Hill in the village of Sungai Pinang Besar, a Chinese settlement (Kampung Cina), doesn’t just attract tourists of the same faith but is a good stop for those who are looking for a scenic Pangkor backdrop.
A true story of a visit to a local fishing village to experience their life.
Pasir Bogak Beach
Pasir Bogak was the first-developed beach and thus is the largest and most popular beach on the island. It is fine for swimming, but gets very crowded during holidays. The beach is narrow and crescent shaped with numerous shady trees. There are some facilities for boating, fishing, snorkelling, scuba diving (Pulau Sembilan), kayaking, rafting. There are accommodations ranging from campsites to Hotels and a number of seafood restaurants located here.
Trekking up Tortoise Hill and around the town of Sungai Pinang in Pangkor Island will take you to the highest peak of the island, where you can enjoy panoramic views of the ocean, countryside and lush forests. The trails of Tortoise Hill are also home to dozens of plants, flowers and animals, and you will walk past Pasir Bogak beach, an idyllic destination from which to watch the sunset.
Teluk Nipah Beach
The increasingly popular Teluk Nipah further north, has a wider beach. The water is a clear emerald-green due to presence of limestone, and usually the beach is quite clean and pretty. Accommodation here caters much to the middle to lower-ranged budgets. Chalets, restaurants and motels line the streets and even the small alleyways.
Be aware of blue ice or blue sand tours at night. They're BIG cons. You'll never get to see the micro planktons like how you see it in the banner.

Lin Je Kong Temple
A small, psychedelic, open-air temple, adorned with statues of giant mushrooms, Chinese dragons and – for some reason – cartoon mice, perches above the northern edge of Coral Beach. Popular with photo-snapping families, Lin Je Kong visits are as much about the sea views as the shrine.
Pangkor Hill is the summit on Pangkor Island, standing about 350 metres tall. The hike up this hill can be moderately difficult but the trip is rewarding when you reach the peak and see for yourself the wondrous views of the sun, sea, sand and greeneries surrounding the island.
The remains of what was left of the 17th-century Dutch fort. If you are a fan of historical sites and buildings, then you should check out this old Dutch fort in a fishing village on the island called Kampung Teluk Gedung.
Visitors get to check out the remaining ruins of the once solidly built fort used to store tin ore by the Dutch. What was left from the building’s former glory today is a roofless three-walled structure, maintained to serve as one of Pangkor Island attractions. The circular holes or windows of the fort was said to house nine cannons to defend the fort.
Coral Bay is one of the best west coast beach, just north of Teluk Nipah, with clear emerald-green water due to the presence of limestone. Usually clean and calm, but there are not to many crowds. A great place to watch the sunset.
It’s not as bustling as Maho Beach or as majestic as Perhentian Long Beach but Coral Beach is the best that Malaysia’s West Coast has to offer. The sea neighboring Mentangor and Giam islands beckon not too far away.
Although separated from Teluk Nipah by a tiny forested cape, Coral Beach is somehow overlooked by visitors who prefer to partake in watersports like canoeing and snorkeling.
Numerous Of Malaysian Pangkor Local Food is available in most locations around the Pangkor island and there are some good seafood restaurants in Pangkor Town itself.
