-Batu Kawan (8 Minutes)
Batu Kawan is an island with a small town in the area of Penang, Malaysia. The island is situated off Seberang Perai, which is on the mainland.

Batu Kawan was long considered a quiet backwater, noted for sugar-cane, coconut and rubber plantations in the 19th century, before changing to oil palm plantations in the middle 20th century, which have now mainly fallen into disrepair. It was among the oldest towns in Penang, accessible only by ferry from Bukit Tambun. Development of the island has come under intense scrutiny after the government chose Batu Kawan as the mainland site for the future Penang Second Bridge. The island is also the location for the Batu Kawan Stadium (Penang's state stadium). The tiny island has many hidden historical gems, dating back to the days of the British colonial masters.

The short strip of beach at Batu Kawan was once popularly known as the Club beach. There was a clubhouse frequented by Europeans who worked and lived on the island, where they danced and dined at night. The clubhouse is long gone, and locals refer to it as Batu Musang beach. The only structure now in the vicinity of this secluded beach is the newly built Batu Musang jetty.
