Meet a driver at your hotel for 9:30am departure, then transfer to a boat for the 30-minute trip to Monkey Beach, also called Teluk Duyung, part of Penang National Park. The beach is home to diverse wildlife, including monkeys and white-bellied sea eagles, and green turtles, flying squirrels, flying lemurs, and many kinds of birds can also be spotted in the park.
You’ll be free to spend the morning on the beach, swimming in the clear water, or just soaking up the sun on the sand. The guide will be happy to supply hand line fishing gear if you’d like to try catching some fish, and there are plenty of spots to relax in the shade.
At the end of the morning, sit down to a barbecue lunch on the beach, then board the boat for the return trip to Penang. This 4-hour beach excursion concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.
