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