Photo of the Day: Batu Ferringhi Beach

Batu Ferringhi Beach

We passed by the long stretch of Batu Ferringhi Beach when we went to see the Penang Butterfly Farm during our Penang Island Escapade. Good thing we stayed at Flamingo by the Beach located in Tanjong Bungah where everything is accessible by public transport. In fact, the Penang Toy Museum is just 5-minute walk from the hotel.

We didn't have any itinerary, we are into free and easy vacations as we get to follow our own time and we get to explore places just the way locals do. We love exploring places without the help of tourist guides! Glad we didn't get lost. I even managed to take snapshots from a moving bus. Traveling by bus in Penang is basically the same in Singapore; smooth and safe.

Enjoy the scenic views of Batu Ferringhi Beach! :D

*Probably the single most heavily developed stretch of tourist resorts in the entire country, the scenery and the beaches have undeniably suffered under the assault of all that concrete.

*Still, while the beaches aren't the best in Malaysia, there are still miles of white sand and palm trees left.

*Also a notable fact making the decision to visit Batu Ferringhi an easier one is, that the more you approach to the west, the less the touristisation has infected the beaches.

*Beaches near the famous night-market are very nice, though with less than perfect water quality because of the extensive powered water sports and infestations of jellyfish.
