Penang National Park is the smallest national park in Malaysia. You may ask what can you see here, and is it worth your time to visit this park? My answer would be most definitely!

Penang National Park is a great destination for nature lovers retreat, so if you love being around nature, and love to hike, this would be a great place to go!
What can be squeezed into this 25 square kilometres land space? Well there is a wetland, mangroves, a meromictic lake, mudflats and turtle nesting beaches, which you can see when you are here. If you plan to see the meromictic lake, you may want to note that the best seasons to visit are June, July and August, as there is a higher chance to see it when the water level is just right. You can also hike to Kerachut beach from here, where you can enjoy the serenity of the beach and visit the local turtle sanctuary.
