Do you enjoy a great beach resort? Penang will delight you. The most eye-catching Penang beach resorts that you should seek out include Batu Ferringhi beach, Teluk Bahang beach and Tanjung Bungah. These three Penang beaches are different and diverse but all are popular tourist attractions in Penang. 

Batu Ferringhi beach is ranked first by many tourists, since most of the Penang beach resorts, are located in close proximity to the Batu Ferringhi beach. The beach is only 12.5 miles (20km) from Georgetown and offers many water sports and other relaxing activities to the visitors. 

Water sports

Some of the most popular water sports are jet skiing, banana boat riding, parasailing, sky parachute and sailing. In addition to these, horse-back riding is also a favourite among the kids, enjoying the cool breeze in the Batu Ferringhi beach. 

The Teluk Bahang beach which borders a fishing village, is also strikingly different and small in size. If you tire busy, crowded Batu Ferringhi, this is an ideal option for a relaxing family picnic or to go  jungle trekking while camping. 

Tanjung Bungah which lies between the Gurney Drive and Batu Ferringhi will provide a photographer some of the best shots to add to his or her collection. The beach gives a distinctively colorful picture during sunrise as well as the sunset, creating picture perfect moments. 

Variety of activities

Pantai Teluk Kampi being the longest stretch of beach in Penang National Park also contributes to Penang as a tourist attraction, with a splendid variety of activities possible at this coast. Though swimming and camping are more common at the Pantai Teluk Kampi, February to April provides an opportunity to view sea turtle nests. 

One of the premier accommodation choices for leisure and business tourists is Copthorne Orchid Hotel Penang. Hotel accommodation at Copthorne Orchid Hotel Penang offers guests a comfortable and exceptionally pleasant stay that is complemented by the courteous staff.
