The island itself is rather dull. The beaches are mostly strewn with rubbish and a lot of the area is unkempt. Several of the “tourist attractions” are small and easily missed. The majority of the lodgings are away from the beach and overall there are many better islands in Malaysia that outshine Pangkor by a mile.

Pangkor is a great place to relax and unwind. It has beautiful sandy beaches and you can take interesting boat trips round the coast. There are excellent seafood restaurants, for example in Teluk Nipah, and duty-free shops for those who like shopping. We found hiring a moped was the best way to get around, although the crash helmets that came with it were not fit for purpose.

This is a decent enough island. It has some minor attractions, some shopping and some decent beaches. It is no Langkawi, Penang or Tioman but is close enough to Kuala Lumpur for a short vacation.

Pangkor is a duty-free island. The last time I visited Pangkor was more than 10 years ago. Things have changed. (1) There are plenty of duty-free shops, no need to worry much about cash because they accept cards and TnG e-wallet too. (2) The beaches are not as clean as I remembered. (3) There are no more hornbills, I used to see hornbills when I looked out of my hotel room more than 10 years ago, but now I just saw monkeys. (4) There are plenty of stalls beside the road at Teluk Nipah, unlike last time where there were not as many stalls. However, do not worry about the transport there. When you reach Pangkor jetty, there are so many cars and taxis to be rent, so don't worry. My family personally rent a Myvi and had a great free time around the island.

I'm a solo travelers. Due to convid-19 cases. I take my solo trip and going back to my father hometown is in a small tiny island in Malaysia. That's we call as pangkor island. Although in the Wikipedia it's written that's it's a fisherman village. Yea it's is. But the excitement cultures and different a lot you can learn and knowing about it. I was born in Georgetown Penang. Don't forget at this tiny island there were a tiny secret a lot of tourist doesn't know about. Theirs had a free Kung Fu/taici class every morning 6:30 am at the Fu ling Kong.

Last visit to this island was 26 years ago. Was shocked to see how dirty this island has become. The Perak state government has obviously not been paying attention to its development which is really pitiful.

I like this island and plan to go back again. Easy to go from KL, take a bus around 4hrs from TBS and arrive at Lumut Jetty and get on the ferry with 7rm ticket for round trip per person. Then the pink van took us to the resort. People are very nice and friendly. I love the beach and the hornbill feeding at 6pm at Sunset View Charlet everyday.

A medium size island with nothing great and with cleanliness issues. Not well maintained either developed. Rent motorcycle, circle the island in 20 minutes. Nice beaches available, so do some wild monkeys. Overall, just a nice getaway hideout.
