Easy hiking, quiet beach at turtle conservatory, food options at monkey beach. Book boat ride at headquarters if going one way.

Like everyone else, I looked up places to visit in Penang and added the national park to my list of places. But OMG. Reading about a place is one thing, visiting it is totally another experience. If you are someone who loves beaches, loves to try out new things and wants to have a mild check, you really MUST visit this place ❤️ it’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. To begin with, this is a trekking trail along the beach front. You needn’t necessarily trek, you may choose to go boating as well. There are two beaches along the shoreline - monkey beach and Kerachut beach. Unless you find it really hard to walk or are too tired, I would highly recommend that you take the trail. Ensure that you are wearing good shoes and carry water with you. After the initial five mins, you will encounter jungle trail - i.e there would no flat surface to walk upon, it is uneven walking plane with lot of stones, roots and other items along the way. But all this is an amazing experience and the beach along the walkway is secluded more often than not and you can get some really wonderful pictures ❤️ we couldn’t finish our trek to the monkey beach as the trail was shut due to storm, but we did manage to go part of the way and we were mind blown! ❤️❤️❤️ this is a free trail. No payment required. You will just have to register your personal details and receive a permit to enter the trail. Don’t miss this amazing experience ❤️

Start your walk early. It is more peaceful and the temperature is kinder. Use insecticide on uncovered parts of your body. Once you get further into the park the insects suddenly pounce. Pathways are well signposted and are easy to follow. Most are very well defined.
Take your time to look at the range of vegetation, you might also spot a monitor lizard waiting to catch fish on the shore. Look out for pitcher plants growing by the side of the path. There is so much to see but easily missed if you go quickly. Get a guide if you can they are very knowledgable and will make the walk more meaningful.

Penang National Park was the highlight of our trip to Malaysia. It´s a small, but beautiful national park. At the time of writing the trail to the stunning Monkey Beach was close due a landslide, but this beach is still reachable by boat (80-100RM). I recommend to hike from the entrance to Turtle Beach (1 hour) and take a boat to Monkey Beach (and the entrance) from there. We paid 120RM for this trip.

Fairly easy trail and beautiful view. My 3 children (age 6,9,11) enjoyed it very much. We walked one way and took a speedboat return.
