Some history

A few hundred years ago some ships from Holland came ashore and camped at one of the beaches of Penang. The locals still call that beach “Pasir Belanda” which means “Dutch Sand”.

Since several towns in the state of Kelantan have names like Pasir Mas (Golden Sand) and Pasir Putih (White Sand), the Dutch couple that started the resort adopted the name Pasir Belanda.
