  • Dish 34 : National Park Penang - Malaysia Tourist & Travel Guide | penang.attractionsinmalaysia.com

  • Most people will be dissappointed if they expect a well-maintained national park. So long as you:

    • Don't expect the canopy walk to be repaired or ready to visit;
    • Don't expect to see well-maintained turtle breeding ground;
    • Don't expect to see the meromictic lake in full level for most of the year.

    You will probably find these fun things to do:

    • The trekking itself, with 1/2 hour to 3-hour trails available. Bring along oranges and nuts to reward yourself!
    • See the large water monitor lizards by the rocky beach near the entrance, that swim out to the sea as the day heats up,
    • Low tide periods and the shallow, clean, water and beach at USM marine research beach and Monkey Beach.
      • Where is the water clean and sandy? Generally the eastern end of these two beaches.
      • When is the tide low? Mid morning or late afternoon, for about 4 days after the new moon or full moon, when the beaches and shallow water stretch out a hundred meters.
    • During low tides, look out for spotted and colorful sea snails, colorful crabs, starfish, and sand dollars, etc,
    • Taking the local boat on the way back (remember to get their name cards or handphone numbers before you enter the park), when sometimes you may see dolphins,
    • Watch out for the aggressive monkeys (macaques) grabbing you sandwishes and camera bags.

  • The Penang National Park is formerly known as Pantai Acheh Forest Reserve. It is then declared a national park by the former Prime Minister in the year of 2003.
