The main island of Pangkor is mostly populated byfishing villagers who occupy the eastern coastline. The island is famous for its 'ikan bilis' (anchovies) and squids. The real attraction here however are the enchanting beaches on the western coastline Pantai Puteri Dewi, Teluk Belanga, Teluk Nipah and Pasir Bogak. Among these, the quiet coves and untrodden bays at Tortoise Bay, Teluk Nipah and Teluk Chempedak are marvelous for swimming or just basking in the sun, in complete privacy amidst tranquil surroundings.

Off the coast of perak State, north of Selangor , lies a cluster of fabulous islands with unquestionably some of the best coves and beaches on the western coast of peninsular Malaysia. Among them two island predominate in the terms of accessibility, infrastructure and development --the largest island PANGKOR and her little sister Pangkor Laut. Those who not familiar with geographical locations generally confuse the two.
