Is Batu Ferringhi Beach good for Water Sport?

A number of operators offer watersports near the beach area. If you are staying at one of the main resorts on the coast, you will enjoy access to a private beach a number of activities including water scooters, speed boat rides, banana boats, snorkelling as well as Island Tours. 

I feel the beach area was not very clean when I last visited the area and staying and swimming in the resort pools seemed like the best option at that time. 

A charter tour to the Islands around Penang offers a great opportunity for diving, fishing and snorkelling.
