Penang's main beach destination has a handful of classy resorts and is well geared up for family fun. While it's much touted and much visited, it doesn't entirely live up to the hype and can't compare to Malaysia’s best: the water isn’t as clear as you might expect, swimming often means battling jellyfish, and the beach itself can be dirty, especially on weekends when hordes of day trippers visit.
