Gertak Sanggul (GPS: 5.28156, 100.19025; Penang Hokkien: Boey1or2) is a fishing village on the southwest coast of Penang Island. With coconut palms swaying overhead, Gertak Sanggul offers the perfect picture of a Malaysian fishing village, complete with a white sandy beach and fishing boats bobbling in the waves. The people of Penang knows Gertak Sanggul as the place where the Yellow Bus turns around. It being the final stop at the southwestern tip of Penang Island, the commuter buses reach their final stop before heading back to town.
Despite the romantic surroundings, the waters off Gertak Sanggul is not suitable for swimming, as it is contaminated by waste discharged from the many pig farms in the area directly into the sea.
From Gertak Sanggul, you can see the "half submerged" shape of Pulau Kendi, the most distant island in Penang state. A day trip to Pulau Kendi can be arranged whenever there is sufficient participants (or eight persons or more), or if anybody is willing to pay to hire the whole boat.
