There are many secrets of Penang. Unlike the famed beaches of Batu Feringghi & Teluk Bahang, which have been pretty commercialized, there are many virgin beaches around.
Pantai Kerachut would be one of them. You will have to trek your way there or take a boat.
One of the special attractions of Pantai Kerachut is the meromictic lake, visible for only six months of the year. The lake has two layers of water of different temperatures. The bottom layer of sea water is normally warmer than the surface fresh water.
The beach is a popular campsite. There is a turtle hatchery at the far end of the beach. If you take the forest trekking trail, you could find the famous eurycoma longifolia. This tree is locally known as tongkat Ali. You can also could find the beautiful sunset if you decided to stay a night for camping at the Pantai Kerachut.
