About

Pangkor Island is part of Perak state in west coast of Malaysian Peninsular. The island is well-situated between Kuala Lumpur and Penang, and easily reached by ferry. Pangkor was once popular as a refuge amongst fishermen, merchants, sailors, and even pirates, which has resulted in establishing the present fishing village and fish-related industries. Pangkor was also trading control point in Malacca Strait.

Stretching on total 8 km2 of land, Pangkor Island consists of the main residential area Pangkor Town and residential villages Sungai Pinang Kecil and Sungai Pinang Besar. The beautiful island is fenced by stretches of magnificent beach alongside the famous fishing villages and Pangkor Laut Island, a privately owned island where the luxurious Pangkor Laut Resort nests.

Pangkor is promoted as budget tourist destination and in 2005, Malaysian Ministry of Tourism support the local developer of Marina Sanctuary Resort Project by providing ferry access to the island. This, at the same time, also meant to bring 2 million tourists into the island annually by developing first and only man-made island, Marina Island Pangkor. To this day, Pangkor Island houses quite significant number of beach resorts and chalets.
