Hikes in Pe­nang Na­tional Park

The Pe­nang Na­tional Park, or Ta­man Ne­gara Pu­lau Pi­nang, is the small­est na­tional park in Malaysia weigh­ing in at just 2,300 hectares. You can opt for a guided tour which most ho­tels can or­gan­ise, but the main trails in this park are rel­a­tively easy and you can get enough in­for­ma­tion from most places (ei­ther on­line or via your ho­tel) to make up your own tour. Plan­ning a day trip is sim­ple – start at the main en­trance of the park near the Teluk Ba­hang bus sta­tion and set off along well-marked trails to beaches and in­ter­est­ing at­trac­tions in­clud­ing Teluk Tukun beach, Mon­key Beach, the Muka Head lighthouse, and the tur­tle sanc­tu­ary at Pan­tai Ker­achut. Re­mem­ber to wear proper shoes and to bring enough wa­ter. If it gets too hot and tir­ing, you can al­ways catch a boat back to Teluk Ba­hang.
