Our brief visit to Penang was nearly over – we had done busy Georgetown, we had hugged trees at the Oriental Spice Garden and the Botanic Gardens but we still had to go and get some sand between our toes.
You would think that Penang being a popular tourist destination its beaches would be if not crowded, at least well, busy. However, on the two occasions we headed to the sea we were surprised as to how quiet and unspoilt the beaches were.
We stopped off drinks at a beachside restaurant called Frandy’s Beach Bar where the mango juices were to die for.
One of our friends had a headache and Frandy gave her an impromptu neck massage. That’s what I call service!
