Batu Ferringhi, is a well developed coastal strip on the north coast of the island of Penang. It is probably the most developed stretch of coast in the country and has several large resorts. Although some regard the beaches as not being up to the standard of others in the country, the competition in the area means it is always possible to find a good deal for resort accommodation and there are plenty of restaurants to enjoy as well as hawker centres and fresh fruit stalls on the side of the road. The area is also famous for it's night markets.
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.
