The north coast is the location of the most popular beach named Ferringhi Beach. Besides water sports guests can enjoy horseback riding or visiting restaurants located on the beachfront. Here seafood is prepared on an open fire, so all dishes are very delicious and unique. The beaches located on the west coast stand out because of their outstanding natural landscapes. Here forests and parks are mixed with cozy bays, and giant riffs literally slam into the coast and make it look like a wild place that hasn’t yet been discovered.
The main shopping area of the island is the town named Georgetown. It is simply full of spacious market squares where you can buy lots of various goods. There are several craft shops and shops that sell antiques. The most popular local souvenirs are mahjong chips (this game is popular among local residents), and female tourists may be interested in purchasing gloves with their name on them.
