Pantai Kerachut, Penang

Stretch out under the sun and admire the beautiful landscapes at Pantai Kerachut beach. Located within Penang National Park on the west coast of Penang Island, this serene beach is one of the most remote expanses of sand on the island state.


The lake at Pantai Kerachut itself is meromictic, meaning it has two layers of salt water and fresh water that do not mix. To get there, visitors first need to trek through a dense rainforest trail inside the park before coming to a clearing where the beach is. The effort is worth the reward of pristine white sand, dazzling blue waters and the chance to see large jellyfish floating near the shore. While on the trail, visitors can admire the beautiful flora and fauna and see the wildlife living in the rainforest.

Chartered boat rides are available to bring visitors back to the park entrance, offering the chance to admire the shoreline and even see some dolphins along the way.
