The water is clear and the beach is clean. In fact, you won’t go wrong as long as you are on the west side of Pangkor Island. Coral Beach is slightly secluded but if you like somewhere which is more crowded, head to Nipah Beach. There are many stalls lining up both sides of the street and is more crowded. If you love beaches, you must come here!

Restoran Sun Hon Siong 新汉商酒楼 142, Main Road, Ayer Tawar, Perak. Opens from 10am – 10pm Closed alternate Mondays The famous dish is sweet and sour pork rib. You can order the dish prepared together with fish fillet. Besides that we ordered belacan kangkung, Foochow fried spring roll, and seaweed soup. If you are fussy with cleanliness, you might have to skip this restaurant as it is not a 5-star restaurant in cleanliness. But then again, most restaurants in Sitiawan are in similar condition though.
