Jungle vistas and exotic wildlife in Malaysia's smallest national park
An easy 15-minute drive from the Bayview Beach Resort Penang, Penang National Park is the smallest national park in Malaysia, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in beauty. Tracts of untamed rainforest harbour chattering monkeys and elusive civet cats, while secluded beaches serve as nesting sites for visiting sea turtles.
Two challenging hiking trails allow you to explore the island on foot, while the beaches can also be reached by boat. Don’t miss the fascinating 250-metre walkway. Suspended 15 metres above the forest floor, it offers the chance to encounter canopy-dwelling animals and birds up close, while providing an enchanting, bird’s-eye view of the lush foliage and sparkling river below.
