Rent a motorcycle at Pangkor. You may even get a good deal at Lumut Jetty, mainland Malaysia. It is the most common mode of transportation on Pangkor and is definitely very convenient to travel to any part of the island.
The price is around 20 - 30RM per day. But it could escalate to 50RM during peak periods like holidays. We got it for 60RM for 2 days just before Deepavali. Look for the helpful Mr Tan outside the Pangkor town jetty.
Some resorts and hotels also offer such rental services but they may be more expensive. So try the town.
Bicycles are not recommended as there are a numbers of up and down slopes on the road, particularly the northeast region. Would be very strenous to ride a bicycle.
Else try the taxis in pink!

We were warned prior to leaving home that the luggage weight limit for this flight from Kuala Lumpur to Pangkor is 10kg. Having twice that amount of luggage we were hoping for storage facilities at the airport, but there are none. As we are returning to KL after Pangkor, our agents in KL kindly offer to store the luggage for us. As it turns out, on check-in, and Italian couple with 60kg luggage between them weren't charged any extra, in fact no-one even commented.
There are only 13 passengers on this Dash 7 48-seater flight, so we manage to secure an emergency exit seat each, right at the front. We have great views of the hotel as we fly over Pangkor Laut.
The arrival airport lounge in Pangkor is open sided, rustic and friendly. The Pangkor Laut reps are waiting to transfer us across the island in a very cramped and old mini-bus. It is not in keeping with the luxury of the resort.
The jetty where we catch a transfer to Pangkor Laut is busy and confusing. We are on a private boat with seven others.
The journey across the water is OK and the hotel looks lovely from the sea approach.

At the Lumut jetty, you can buy tickets to join the ferry to Pulau Pangkor. There are ferries at regular intervals (every 20 mins or 30 mins, depending on whether weekday, weekend or PH).
The 30 minute journey is comfortable and safe. Yes, I checked and there are life jackets on board.
For those passengers who want to go to Pangkor Island Beach Resort, the drop off point is different from the main drop off point., which is nearer to Pangkor town.
During school holidays and public holidays, there was a long queue of people trying to leave the island at the same time (probably they have to catch some kind of public coach). So, if you have time (and your own car), instead of queuing up with them, go to the jetty after the peak period. After 4pm onwards should be safe.

we drove up from Singapore to Lumut. It was a very interesting trip by getting lost in K.L and taking the small roads instead of the North South Highway. But the small roads allow more interesting drive such as rail, greenery , old shophouses.... coconut plantation, palm plantation n even banana plantation.
It's a 7 hrs drive up. Toll charges came ard SGD 50 coz we went off to the small road. Take caution for trailers
U can park your car at Lumut for RM10 per night.
If you do drive, remember to get the fresh mangoes along the way when u have left ard 30-45mins from Lumut. They r SOOOooo good n fresh. I bought "Dragon Fruit" and the flesh is a lovely purple maroon colour. ONe of a Kind !
