One of the best beaches on Pangkor Island with its white sand and clear waters. A good spot for snorkeling as well as other water sports. There is an uphill jungle trek across the island. Pangkor also has a lot to offer bird watchers, with amazing hornbills among the interesting species.

Coral beach is a lovely beach. The sea is fairly calm and the beach is quite large and not crowded.There is plenty of shade for those that don't want to lie in the sun. There are a few restaurants scattered along the beachfront that also provide beach chairs. I suggest having an evening meal on the beach at sunset. Possibly... More

Loved Coral Beach-it has blue, clear water and white sand. Past the Chinese temple at the end of the beach there is a short trail through the woods that opens to a serene little beach amongst rock outcroppings. Great spot to swim or climb the rocks, take pictures, and great private spot! Littering is a problem in areas, but I... More

Nice beach in Paulau Pangkor. There are many sea shell to pick. Be careful of playing there as there too many sea shell and dried coral reef, and may sometime hurt your leg. Beware of the wave which sometime is very strong. Overall is a nice beaches for family.

Really nice beach with clear water. Other than some floating rubbish that came from the main Island, it was a nice experience. Took some nice pictures of the seaside.

Area is quite nice but a lot of people within a small sized beach area. There's a rock formation near and should have been a great place for a selfie, but due to some vandals, you have to find a spot and angle to capture the beauty of the place. Worth recommending if for short and budget visit, but if... More

After snorkeling, we were dropped off at Coral Island for another session of 'dipping' in the sea. Compared to Pulau Giam which we went snorkeling earlier, Coral Island is quieter and have clearer water. We had a good swim here and felt so peaceful just sitting by the beach enjoying the sea breeze.

Unprotected sea living, it should have been a nice beach but polluted so much with rubbish by locals, operators or even by tourists. Government does not do much on protecting this lovely paradise.

A lot of motorboat activities going on here where the boat operators & instructors are on the verge of reckless. sometimes u can't even blame them. How r u supposed yo blamed kids slightly older than 10 years old for being reckless when they were handled the reins by some adults in the first place.. Otherwise it's a favorite motorsport... More
