If you are from Penang, I’m pretty sure you should hear this name occasionally from someone. Yeah, Pantai Kerachut. It actually a national park which interlink a few other beaches like Muka head, monkey beach and so. Exact what beaches are connected, I didn’t pay attention on the list though, but those mentioned are the famaous one.
If you like hiking and beaches, this combo place should suit you well. After finished some sweating hike, you’ll reach to a beach. You could either rent a boat and make an appointment with him for pickup before you start your journey, and wait at the dock after that; Or you could just hike it back to where you start.
The journey should take you about 45mins if you are a relatively fast hiker. For us, it took about 1.5hrs because we entered “Pit Stop” numerous of times… 😀 Stop for photo shooting, stop for drinks, stop for rest and so… It’s not really tough , I feel rather easy though. Compared to Bukit Tukun, Tukun is much tougher. If you really “into” hiking, Pantai Kerachut might not be your “cup of coffee”. Anyway, this place is more suitable for team building and friends gathering. One more thing to add on, “ninja turtles” are available to see. Remember to drop by if you have spare times.
Overally the place is nice and easing for some sweating exercise. But to me is kinda too far. It located somewhere people called it “End of the world”, because from Batu Ferringhi is just straight down until end of road, you’re there!
The day we went was rainning. To avoid water goes into my camera, I didn’t really shoot many photos. Just some misc shots on our way. Would like to share it to you still.. 😛
