Penaga (GPS: 5.527686, 100.381479) is a small town in Seberang Perai Utara on the Penang Mainland. It is located to the north of Teluk Air Tawar. The pekan, or town centre, is similar to most small towns in Malaysia, comprising semi-wooden shophouses, with a few brick ones, lining both sides of Jalan Penaga.
So far, Penaga appears slightly out of the way, as far as development is concerned. The place is still rural, and the pace here is slower than in the central and southern part of Seberang Perai. The two main roads in the area are Jalan Penaga and Jalan Permatang Bendahari, which goes all the way to the bank of the Muda River, across from Kota Kuala Muda.
The village of Kampung Baru Penaga is located on the coast overlooking Penang Island. Other villages in the area includes Kampung Kuala Muda, Kampung Bakar Kapor, Kampung Penaga Dua, Kampung Lahar Endin and Kampung Tembusu.
