See a more natural side of Penang as you escape the city on this 4-hour excursion to the island’s wild rainforests and beautiful unspoiled beaches at Penang National Park. It’s the perfect chance to immerse yourself in nature as you enjoy a relaxing day of beautiful views and fun in the sun.

Start your trip with a pick up at 9am from hotels along Tanjung Bungah to Batu Ferringghi, continuing on a drive to the island’s northwestern tip to Penang National Park. This 10-square mile (26 sq km) park is among the smallest in the world, yet still manages to harbor an incredible diversity of habitats including wetlands, coral reefs, mangroves and turtle-nesting grounds.  Lucky for you, this tiny national park also boasts eight of the best beaches on the entire island of Penang.

Stop by the park’s Interactive Center and Gallery for an intro to all it has to offer. Then join your guide on a 1-hour trek into the rainforest, tracing its path between the fishing village of Telok Bahang to the gorgeous Telok Tukun Beach. 

Then walk along an 820-foot (250m) canopy walkway, dangling 49 feet (15m) above the forest floor, offering visitors a unique chance to observe the plant and animal life of the forest’s upper levels. During your walk on the canopy, listen as your guide shares details about the indigenous wildlife of the area, including its numerous monitor lizards. If you’re feeling hot, make sure to cool off with a swim in the refreshing pool fed by the Tukun River.

Continue to the beautiful Monkey Beach, where you’ll have time to relax and enjoy a box lunch of sandwiches and fruit. As you eat, keep your eyes peeled for the numerous monkeys that call the beach home, watching for other creatures like green turtles, flying squirrels and flying lemurs that inhabit the area. Take a short 20-minute boat ride back from Monkey Beach, watching for the many migratory birds that call these mangrove swamplands home.

Finish your trip with a return drive to your hotel in Penang.

This is a good walking tour through the national park. Our guide's English was a little bit difficult to understand, but he was friendly and informative and overall the trek was enjoyable. Unfortunately we had to wait for about 30-40 minutes for the boat to pick us up from the beach as it seemed to be late. We got back to the hotel about 1.5 hours later than scheduled. The tour information on this site does not specify that you need at minimum good walking shoes, water, insect repellent, and suitable clothing for trekking through the park. Water was not provided until we stopped for lunch, which was a good 2 to 3 hours into the walk. I think the site needs to be updated to include this information.
