Attractions in Pulau Pangkor - Beaches And Island
There are quite a lot of beaches on Pangkor Island, but only a few of these beaches are popular among locals and tourists. The rest are secluded and unspoilt. Pasir Bogak Beach probably is the most popular beach on the island. Another great beach is Teluk Nipah Beach at Teluk Nipah; where you can find clear waters. You can even snorkel in the area, as it is located directly opposite Pulau Giam (Giam Beach) which is the only island that is surrounded by corals. Snorkeling at Giam is inexpensive. Other great beaches are Carol Beach and Segadas Beach (the secret beach). Though Segadas Beach is not that easy to reach, you need to walk from the small town Teluk Gedung via a short jungle trip to the secluded beach, which takes around 20/25 minutes; it probably is the most beautiful beach on the island.
