Pulau Aman in Bahasa Malaysia means "island of peace" and its name suggests, it is the gateway to
tranquility and serenity. Situated on an island covering an area of 288 acres, it is 2.5 nautical
miles from the mainland just off the coast of Seberang Perai's southern district. The nearest
town is Bukit Tambun.
An idyllic fishing village with a population of only three hundred, the majority of people on
Pulau Aman are elderly folks and laughing, carefree children. Life on Pulau Aman is simple and
traditional with man and nature of co-existing in harmony with one other. Here the warmth of the
sun is only rivalled by the warm friendliness of the locals.
Fishing, water sports and jungle trekking are some of the popular activities of holiday-makers on
the island. Places of interest, each with their own fascinating story to tell, await the
exploration of the adventurous.
Some stones resembling gold were once found at "Telaga Emas". This well is unique because it
never runs dry even during the worst drought and its water continue to remain fresh even when
mixed with sea water. "Batu Perompak" literally means "Pirate's Rock" and in the olden days it
was the haunt of pirates who plundered the waters around the island.
There is also an old grave at the top of the hill near Batu Perompak which is believed to be the
final resting place of a pirate chief called Panglima Garang. Near the beach of Pulau Gedong is
"Gua Lanun" or "Pirates' Cave" where pirates sheltered and hoarded their loot.
