1. Batu Ferringhi Beach
One of Penang’s most popular beaches, Batu Ferringhi offers spectacular views of the Andaman Sea. Development of the area started with the opening of the Lone Pine, a small but charming family-run bungalow, in 1948. These days, although numerous resorts line the beach, it retains its quiet, laidback vibe. Those with a desire for more adventure can try parasailing or jet skiing offered on the beach with no appointment necessary.
