Batu Ferringhi, Penang Island





Batu Ferringhi, situated along the coastal road north-west of Georgetown and lined with a string of international-standard resorts, is the most popular beach in Penang.

Soak in the sun or unwind on the beach while you enjoy a host of aquatic thrills from wind-surfing to canoeing. For a spine-tingling adventure, try parasailing to enjoy the view of the beach from the sky.
As the sun sets, Batu Ferringhi comes alive with a carnival-like atmosphere with an open-air bazaar selling anything from ornate curios to enticing souvenir items.

Watch local artisans demonstrate the intricate art of craft-making and batik-painting. Dubbed the Feringghi Walk, the bazaar offers shoppers a host of attractions.

A short taxi ride away is the Spice Garden, a beautifully landscaped garden with a little coffee house (delicious cakes!) and short jungle trail attached

How to get there

Taxi
Your best option to get to and from Batu Ferringhi to Georgetown and back is by taxi. Buses are infrequent and it's just too far and too hot to cycle.

This popular stretch of beach is famous for its range of 4 and 5 star hotels lining the beach. However, there is also a good choice of backpacker's places.
