Penang is a city that happens to be on an island. Good for architecture, history, culture and food. If you want snorkelling and clear water, Perhentian and not Penang.

No question Perhentian in July for beach, clear water and marine life. Have a review for the Tuna Bay Resort that may help. Do book now. They fill up about 6 months in advance for the best rooms.
