Pantai AchehPantai Acheh (17 April 2004)

Pantai Acheh (GPS: 5.41569, 100.197) is a small Chinese fishing community on the west coast of Penang Island. It is located at the end of Jalan Pantai Acheh, which links to the round-island main road. The village is remote and to a great extend, detached from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Penang. On the way towards the village is the Sheikh Tahir Observatory, an Islamic astronomical centre where the sighting of the new moon is done at the end of the fasting month.

Let me list them for you: there are no supermarkets here, no shopping malls, no hypermarkets and the nearest hospital is in Balik Pulau. At the moment, there aren't any housing development worth mentioning. If you should be contemplating a home in Pantai Acheh, you are most likely into a life as fisherman or farmer, or you simply want to enjoy the green acres.

Getting there

Rapid Penang Bus No. 404 goes to Pantai Acheh from Balik Pulau.
