The seafront promenade at Straits Quay, Penang.
The Nautilus Bay’s IJM promenade is a stretch of seafront public walkway and park located at the eastern coast of Jelutong, Penang. The blue pillars called Celebration of Our Blue Sky, a modern art sculpture by Japanese artist Hitori Nakayama, can be seen at the background.
The Straits Quay is set within the waterfront community of Seri Tanjung Penang. It’s a 12.4-acre retail enclave offers everything from boutiques to bistros, signatures seafood restaurants to seaside cafes, antique shops to art galleries, bars and boatrides. Service apartments were also built around Waterside and the Marina with views facing the berths and the sea, hence, providing a nice seafront living. The Straits Quay is part of the Seri Tanjung Pinang project by E&O developments.
The Esplanade area is a popular tourist location at George Town as it houses the Fort Cornwallis, the City Halls as well as an old lighthouse which overlooks the Penang Harbour. The large Esplanade field is also the venue of major festivals held at the island (such as New Year celebration, cultural show, and the Bon Odori festival). The seafront of the Esplanade is a popular place to fish day or night while during the night, there is a foodcourt nearby selling local delicacies.
