An afternoon in Penang’s National Park (Taman Negara Pulau Pinang)

We spent a lovely afternoon in Penang’s National Park (Taman Negara Pulau Pinang)

Pantai Kerachut Jetty, Penang National Park

Swings on Monkey beach, Penang National Park

Don’t forget to hug a tree 🎄

There are plenty of outdoor activities for the adventurer in Penang.

Today we spent the afternoon hiking to Pantai Kerachut and a boat trip to Monkey beach for a relaxing drink by the beach before heading home.

Taman Negara Pulau Pinang is possibly the world’s smallest national park. It’s not a difficult hike and the trails are easy to follow and well marked.

I highly recommend taking a boat trip back to the entrance at Teluk Bahang jetty. It makes the overall experience better, I promise.

Where: Penang National Park, Teluk Bahang. (free except if you hire the boat)

Price of Boat trip: Rm 100 per boat from Pantai Kerachut to Teluk Bahang via Monkey beach stopover. Sits up to 10 people.

Time to Hike to Pantai Kerachut: 50 mins

Meromictic Lake at Pantai Kerachut, Penang national Park.

*This is a lake where the fresh water and sea water meet but because of the different densities of the water, the water doesn’t mix and creates two layers.
