The Weekly Getaway: Palau Pangkil

There only a few islands around the world that you can actually rent as a whole. Palau Pangkil in Indonesia is one of them. And guess what… you can walk around the whole island from north to south in less than 30 minutes!

Located less than 3 hours away from Singapore, Pangkil is the perfect location if you’re looking to host a party of less than 30 people (that’s the maximum capacity). If you’re a smaller group or entertain the thought of meeting new people, you can rent one of the thatched houses on the island.

On the way to Palau Pangkil

Travelers need to get to Bintan and board a private boat arranged by the hosts of Palau Pangkil

With activities such as kayaking, petanque and snorkelling you won’t get bored. And if you do, there is also an on-request massage service. Meals are served in the open-air common area although snacks and fruit are available throughout the day.
