Nipah Beach and Coral Bay


Nipah Beach or Teluk Nipah in Malay is one of the best beaches at Pangkor. It's also home to many hotels and hostels on the island.

Nipah Beach, a long beautiful stretch of white sand

Nipah Beach is much more quiet then the Pasir Bogak. Usually people talk about one beach but in fact there are two separate beaches: Teluk Nipah and Coral Bay but as they are so close many people forget they are separated.

Nipah Beach is a several hundred meters long stretch of white sand and it is my favorite beach at Pulau Pangkor. The beach is laid in a bay, as it can be best seen at the next pictures:

The beach is secluded. Therefore there is little current and it is a very safe place to swim. The water is comfortable warm and never too deep. In fact, during low tide, you will be able to walk to Pulau Giam, the island you see right in front of the beach.

Coral Bay, Teluk Nipah

There are beaches at Pulau Giam and it's slightly bigger neighbor: Pulau Metagor. Usually you have to rent a boat to go there. You can hire a boat at the Nipah beach for visit to all nearby islands.

Nipah Bay is a very popular place to stay, and not for nothing. The beach has great white sand, blue waters and in the evening excellent sunsets. There are a many good places to stay.
