Stop at Pangkor Town, the little picturesque town of narrow streets and corner coffee shops. The Nyonya marble topped tables and antique clocks gracing the walls contribute to its old world charm. As a matter of fact, from SPK it is a continuous village strip on to Pangkor Town – messy but full of interest. There is lots to look at: boat building, fish being dried or frozen and a colorful south Indian Temple. Old, elegant buildings still house some of the town’s administrative offices. A 20 minutes drive south of Lumut brings one to the popular beach playground of Teluk Batik , the site of the annual Lumut Festival .
Beach materials come from erosion of rocks offshore, as well as from headland erosion and slumping producing deposits of scree. A coral reef offshore is a significant source of sand particles. You can see tropical wild life located in the vicinity of the beaches. Malyasian beaches are safe and relatively crime-free especially for the women. The resort also has a special feeding plate by the beach where the hornbills may come down for a quick bite.
There are lots of islands in the bays and huge granite rocky outcrops standing sentry at the ends of the smaller coves. At Cape Le Grand beach you can drive a four-wheel drive for about 40kms along the white sand back to Esperance town, or take the road out to Rossiter Bay where, in every likelihood, you can have the entire 15kms of beach to yourself (even in the middle of summer). The corals around some of the smaller islands are beautiful. And for some serious fishing you may want to organize a boat to Pulau Sembilan, a group of uninhabited islands 40 minutes by speedboat away.

Mostly populated by fishing communities, Pangkor abounds with natural attractions. The beaches, the forests, and the coral inthe seas surrounds the island. The main island of Pangkor is mainly populated by fisherfolk who occupy the eastern coastline. The island is famous for its ‘ikan bilis’ (anchovies) and squids. Pangkor Village is a busy little place with lots happening, particularly in the early hours of the morning when fresh produce from fishermen and from mainland are brought in for the local community’s daily needs. Toward the end of the village, on the left from the jetty, a few ‘kedai kopi’ (coffee shops) cater to the local malaysian folk who frequent the place for their breakfast and a little bit of the local gossip.
