The faithful motorcycle
For the rental of motorcycles, it is good to have the contact no. of the owner with you in case the vehicle breaks down or unforeseen circumstances happen. He should give it to you even if you haven't asked.
We lost our key at Tortoise Bay in the late evening. It was too far to travel anywhere else on foot. The owner came to our rescue with another key after we called him with the help of another local at the beach. *Phew* Really helpful.
Ticket counters near Lumut jetty
There are a few ferry operators at Lumut jetty. As you approached the jetty, you would see at least 2 tickets counters (impressionably, one group in yellow and another in pink) trying to draw your attention with their voices. That's where you can buy ferry tickets. :)
One-way trip cost from 5 - 8RM. Some hotels and resorts like Pan Pacific and Teluk Dalam offer their own ferry service. So do take note. Tell the counters where you are heading (your lodging). They would tell you where to get the right tickets.
Selecting a motorcycle
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!
