are some of the loveliest in Malaysia. Although the water quality has degraded over the years, sceneries along Penang beaches are still drawing tourists from all over the world. Most of the sandy beaches in Penang are located along the north coast of the island, as the eastern side was formerly mangrove swamp. There are also sandy beaches along the south and southwest coast while the western coast is also covered with mangrove swamp. The northwest side has a few secluded beaches such as Pantai Kerachut.
On the whole, the most famous beaches in Penang are Batu Ferringhi and Tanjong Bungah. These are where you find the highest concentration of beach resorts and luxury condominiums. Since the northern coast is hilly, much of the construction are on the hill slopes overlooking the beaches.
The beaches on other parts of Penang have so far escaped tourism, and are used only by the locals. On weekends, you will find families picnicking by the seaside. On weekdays, it is normal to see an angler or two perched on the rock with a fishing rod.
