LOCATION:
This is the private beach fronting Pangkor Island Beach Resort (formerly Pan Pacific Pangkor Resort). Outsiders may not be permitted access to this beach by the resort's security guard, although I feel that such act is illegal by Malaysian Law.

(I think there is NO real private beach in the country, but there is private property such as the hotel compound which should be distinguished between these two).

The beach is also known as either Pantai Puteri Dewi or Pantai Teluk Belanga.

DESCRIPTION:

The beach is a 3-kilometer long stretch of white sands. It is cleaned regularly by the resort personnel. Plenty of space to call you own - resting, relaxing, watching the hornbills which call this area home, or just sunbathing.

I did some snorkeling at the far-right side of the beach. There was some marine life, not plenty though. The water visibility was not too great and generally coral ecosystem does not thrive in the surrounding area.

The beach is also frequented by the exquisite hornbills, so if you are here, just look out for them. They might be hanging on tree branches around the beach. The resort also has a special feeding plate by the beach where the hornbills may come down for a quick bite.
