If you are living or holidaying in Penang and love to watch sunset ( just like me) then sunset bistro in Batu Ferringhi offers the best place to watch sunset.
Sunset bistro is located behind the Ferringhi Garden and just next to Parkroyal Hotel. If you are driving, just turn right after Pakroyal Hotel into a small lane. Soon, you will reach a T-junction at the end of the road. Turn left and immediately a signboard of sunset bistro greets you.
Yesterday, I went to sunset bistro again. The first reason was to watch the sunset and relax and have drink with friends. Second reason was because I heard sunset bistro is going to make way for a new hotel at the area soon. I’m not sure it’s the truth or otherwise but the rumour certainly made me felt goose bump.
I always tell my friends I like this place a lot. Why? It’s because of the environment. I can do many things over here. Play cards, drink, eat, watch sunset, play banana boat, jet skiing, horse riding and parasailing. Bottom line, it’s the best place to view sunset.
My friends and I were there around 6pm. While waiting for the sun to set, my friends decided to try the parasailing with me on the boat to capture their pictures. I opted out from parasailing as I was not ready… hahaha..
Ready, get set….
Parasailing at Batu Ferringhi beach while waiting for sunset.
After a few round near by the beach, my friends happily landed while I sat on the boat enjoying the nice scenery of Batu Ferringhi beach.
Slowly as time past by, the sun began to set. It was really nice experience. I saw a couple sitting on the beach and enjoying the view and playing with the sea water.
Sunset beach……Indeed so romantic.
Occasionally, I took some sunset pictures while I had my sunset dinner at this lovely sunset bistro. I think it’s a nice place to have sunset wedding too.
Beautiful sunset, isn’t it? I bet if not because of the clouds the sunset will be even more beautiful.
If you a Penangite and can’t always go to Bali or Phuket or Pattaya or watch sunset at Bakheng hill, then Sunset bistro at Batu Ferringhi is definitely the place for you to unwind during the weekends.
Update: Sunset Bistro was demolished by the state authority on 22nd January 2011 .
