BOGAK BEACH WEST PANGKOR
Just across the passage on the west coast of Pulau Pangkor proper. There are several sandy bays on the west coast and in the right wind conditions good anchorage can be found anywhere in 4-6 metres. We like just northwest of the granite rocks off the main link road in the south of Bogak Beach.
Plenty of restaurants and a few hotels are ashore. A short taxi ride gets you to the east coast stilted villages for cheaper shopping, food or fast ferry back to Marina Island on the mainland.
Another sheltered spot with less going on is a few miles north. Go around the abandoned Metangor Island Marina and into Nipah Beach. Anchor on sand in 4-7 metres inside Pulau Giam off the Nipah Bay Villas at 4°13.980N, 100°32.600E. There is a small private beach on the east edge of Pulau Giam that makes a good half-day dinghy excursion. Roads connect back to Bogak, east Pangkor and north to Batik Resort Bay and the airport in Dalam Bay.
