Pulau Aman is a small island of about 115 hectares located off the coast of Seberang Perai south. It is a traditional Malay fishing village with a population of only about three hundred. The majority population there are the elderly folks and children.
'Aman' is the Malay word for peace. Therefore, Pulau Aman means Island of Peace. It was first inhabited by the Bugis in 1817. Historic sites include Telaga Emas (Golden Well), Makam Purba (Ancient Tomb), Batu Perompak (Pirate's Rock) and Gua Lanun (Pirate's Cave).
The main activities for the people of Pulau Aman are fishing and agrotourism. Twenty houses on the island offer homestay with optional planned activities. The homestay programme was set up in 2008 to allow visitors to stay in the homes and experience village life. Visitors can also opt to stay in chalets or camp at designated camp sites.
At Pulau Aman, visitors have the opportunity to enjoy and savour the fresh seafood. Oysters, mantis prawns and fish can be picked and purchased at the dock of the floating restaurant to be handed over to the restaurant's staff to be either steamed, fried or boiled. The mouthwatering Mee Udang (prawn noodles) is also served at the floating restaurant.
