With a luscious interior and golden sands around the coastline that are lapped by clear blue warm waters, Pangkor Laut Island is a relaxed placed perfect for enjoying the sun in South East Asia.
The majority of your days will be spent beachside, in the pool or in the spa as you enjoy the seclusion of this amazing resort. Beachwear is imperative, and plenty of it, to enjoy these sunny days. Shorts, t-shirts and other cover-ups are a good idea, as is a sun hat, sunglasses and sun lotion.
If you are going to enjoy the jungle trekking excursions then comfortable shoes should be taken for walking through the interior. Otherwise, there is a gym and tennis courts if you want to take any sportswear.
In the evening, temperatures tend to cool off a little so you will need some more covered clothing, like linen trousers and long-sleeve t-shirts or a sweater. The dress code is still relaxed but you may want to dress up depending on the restaurant you decide to dine in. Insect repellent and bite cream is recommended. The island is off the coast of the main country so access to toiletries and other personal medical supplies could be limited so it is worth taking everything you know you’ll need.
With an equatorial climate, Pangkor Laut boasts year round high temperatures that range from 20ºC to 35ºC every day, like the rest of Malaysia. Although it is a wonderful climate for enjoying this idyllic setting, rainfall is common regardless of when you travel. This is convectional rainfall where the rising warm air currents build up clouds and the result is a downpour that lasts no longer than hour or two before blazing sunshine reappears.
Generally, there will be more rain between September and December, and the most popular time to visit the Island is January and February where the days are warm and sunny before cooling off in the evening.
