Penang Beaches & Islands

Some of the country’s most beautiful beaches are located in the northern part of Penang. Visitors have been known to flock to this island for some time off on its beaches as much as to sample a piece of its history and culture.

Batu Feringghi

Batu Feringghi has been well-developed as a recreational spot teeming with resorts, restaurants and stalls that specially cater to the European tourist market. Batu Feringghi's atmosphere and feel can be likened to Patong Beach in Phuket, minus the pole dancers of course! There's a wide range of accommodation available that will suit even the tightest budgets. Read More...


Pantai Teluk Kampi / Teluk Kampi Beach

An hour away from Kerachut Beach in Teluk Bahang, Teluk Kampi is the longest stretch of beach in the Penang National Park, offering a variety of recreational activities including swimming, camping and bird-watching. Between February to April, Teluk Kampi becomes a turtles’ breeding ground – an opportunity which you should not miss to witness.

Pulau Aman / Aman Island

Pulau Aman stands for 'Island of Peace' in Malay. Located some 2.5 nautical miles off the mainland state of Seberang Perai, the island is a tranquil place with a population of only 300 people living in a quaint village, surrounded by lush tropical rainforest. A short boat ride from the town of Tambun will take you here.

Pulau Jerejak / Jerejak Island

Located just off the island’s south-east, Pulau Jerejak is a lush tropical island with a rich and colourful past. Once ‘Malaysia’s Alcatraz’, Pulau Jerejak has been developed into a major tourist attraction, with a resort, a Spa and a number of recreational facilities available for visitors to this island. The island’s jungle, one of the few remaining rainforests in Malaysia, is said to be more than 400 years old. There is a ferry service from the Pantai Jerejak terminal in Bayan Lepas, which takes visitors to and from the island daily.

Tanjung Bungah

Located close to Georgetown between Gurney Drive and Batu Feringghi, Tanjung Bungah is hidden among lush greenery and rocky landscapes. Some claim that the views of the horizon from the beach are simply the best in Penang! Several upmarket hotels cater for various accommodation needs, letting you enjoy the pristine and serene surroundings. Read More...

Teluk Bahang

The scenic beach of Teluk Bahang is rocky, shady and serene - perfect for a weekend retreat minus the large crowds of nearby Batu Feringghi. Those who crave isolated beaches should go to Teluk Duyung, Monkey Beach, Pantai Kerachut or Pantai Mas – all only accessible via trails around the Pantai Acheh Forest Reserve in Teluk Bahang. There are camping grounds available for you to spend a night under the stars and in the morning, head to the recreational forest for jungle-trekking or visit the Forestry Museum. Coastal villages dot the area where evenings signal the return of the fishermen from the sea with their day's catch. Look out for great seafood in Teluk Bahang - it's one of the best!
