Seeking an escape from the winter chill? Kick off your shoes, feel the sand between your toes and wade into one of Malaysia’s magnificent beaches.
For five-star luxury, look no further than Batu Feringghi beach in Georgetown, Penang or stunning Pasir Tengkorak Beach in Langkawi.
Those looking for a little wildlife with their beach break will enjoy the jungle-meets-sea vibe of Bako National Park in Sarawak, where it’s not unusual to hear a greeting from the Proboscis monkeys, rustling high above in the trees that line the sand.
For a more secluded experience, the Perhentian Islands that border south-east Thailand and Lumut’s Pangkor Island offer visitors a stunning holiday alternative with a quieter jungle beach vibe.
