Pangkor Island tend to be forgotten as travelers focus on the islands on our east coast namely Perhentian, Redang and Tioman Island. Just 10 minute ferry ride away from Lumut, this scenic island boasts beautiful beaches, amazing wildlife and rich history. It really is the hidden gem of the Straits of Malacca.

While many people associate hornbills with Sawarak, hornbills are numerous and easy to spot on Pangkor Island. Both the world's smallest hornbill, the Oriental Pied Hornbill and the world's largest hornbill, the Great Hornbill, can be found on the island. Come see these majestic birds upclose.

Pangkor Island is rich in culture and history. Historically, a fishing settlement, there are Malay, Chinese and Indian communities on the island. Visit a picturesque floating mosque on the south eastern side of the island. Primarily a fishing settlement, there are signs of its fishing heritage throughout the island. Come see how shipwrights are still building fishing boats the old way at a traditional shipyard.

Wildlife abounds at Pangkor Island, and night time is when it all comes alive. We'll go on a nightwalk to see frogs, lizards, snakes, wildboar and nocturnal birds such as nightjars and owls.

On the very next day, we will go on a short 30-minute hike to Teluk Segadas an isolated cove where we could go on a swim or snorkel. So join us on this exciting trip on 8-9 June 2019! Book now as spaces are limited to 20 people. This trip is family-friendly.
