Emerald Bay

Emerald Bay is located on the west part of the island. The bay is considered by many independent travelers and consultants as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

True or not, the Pangkor Laut management has left Emerald Bay as natural as possible. The exception are the comfort stations and dining facilities. This as a complement of the all-day beach outings.
