Located on the northwestern coast of Peninsular Malaysia is Penang Island. Fine white beaches and the shimmering sea outline this popular destination. Although hawker stalls offering a diverse selection of local fare are a common and welcoming site, many full service restaurants and bars can be found throughout the island. Sharing the same shoreline as other beachesGeorgetown, lie some of the finest and least known beaches on the island. If you don't mind a trek through the jungle, there are also many other secluded beaches left to be discovered. Beyond the beach, Penang is home to a spectacular butterfly farm, bird park and other wildlife reserves.
