Batu Ferringhi is the most popular destination among tourists visiting Penang. Located along the north coast of the island, it is famous for its long stretch of golden beach, numerous venues for food, holiday resorts ranging from local wooden huts to jaw-dropping 5 start resorts, hawker centres and a very popular evening roadside market.
Beach and water sports activities are also available to suit those with an active lifestyle. Other activities include beach volleyball, quad biking, water skiing, para-sailing, horseback riding, boating, banana boat rides and jet skiing.
For those looking for a more laid back time at the beach, order a drink from the many five star resorts dotted along the beach, kick back on their pool-side sun lounger and enjoy the sun and sea breeze.
Most hotels and resorts offer foot reflexology and body massage services for both guests and visitors.
Visiting children also have a host of activities to keep occupied and entertained, from wading pools to sandy beaches, perfect for sand castle building.
Definitely a must-visit for visitors to Penang.
