Penang Beaches


Sun kissed coastlines. Cool ocean breezes. Thrilling water sports. All these and more await those who step along the soft sandy shorelines of Penang. Beaches on the island offer the perfect holiday escape, letting you spend the day enjoying the sun, sand and surf. From popular Penang beach resorts that offer plenty of fun activities to secluded seaside getaways, this enchanting island has it all.

Batu Ferringhi is one of the best known beaches in Penang. Its soft white sands offer the ideal backdrop for one to laze on the beach or take part in a range of water sports. Feel the rush of excitement as you parasail, jet-ski or windsurf across the waves with the sea as your playground. You can also enjoy the thrill of horseback riding with the wind in your face, the horizon stretching endlessly in the distance.

Translated to “Flower Cape”, Tanjung Bungah is another must visit beach in Penang. Set amidst miles of sandy seashore, this scenic coastal area lies tucked away amidst lush greenery. Tanjung Bungah is also home to the Penang Water Sports Centre, where you can enjoy activities such as canoeing, kayaking and spot fishing.

If you are looking for a secluded stretch of coastline far from the madding crowd, then make your way to Teluk Kampi beach. Part of the stunning Penang National Park, this pristine beach can be reached by boat or by a 5km trek through the park. Serenaded by the sounds of the sea, it is the perfect place to camp under the stars. Those visiting between February and April also have the chance to witness the amazing sight of turtles hatching on the beach.

Nestled along Tanjung Bungah beach, Copthorne Orchid Hotel Penang offers a coastal sanctuary like no other. Our luxurious beach resort in Penang is also within easy reach of the beach in Batu Ferringhi, allowing you to easily explore the island’s alluring coastline.
