Shipwreck, an unexpected sight in Teluk Kumbar


There are more than a dozen shipwrecks beneath the waves surrounding Penang, such as the ๐‘ฒ๐’–๐’Ž๐’‚, ๐‘ฏ๐’‚๐’ˆ๐’–๐’“๐’, ๐’‚๐’๐’… ๐‘ช๐’‰๐’๐’”๐’‚ ๐‘ด๐’‚๐’“๐’– ๐’˜๐’‚๐’“๐’”๐’‰๐’Š๐’‘๐’” ๐’‡๐’“๐’๐’Ž ๐‘พ๐’๐’“๐’๐’… ๐‘พ๐’‚๐’“ ๐‘ฐ๐‘ฐ.


But some of the most exciting shipwrecks are those we know aboutโ€”and can visit. Off the coast of Teluk Kumbar, lies the remains of the ๐‘ฟ๐’Š๐’ ๐’€๐’Š ๐’€๐’Š ๐’”๐’‰๐’Š๐’‘๐’˜๐’“๐’†๐’„๐’Œ.

The crew escaped, but the ship has been lying half-submerged on the seabed ever since, despite attempts to float the ill-fated ship.


Today, the shipwreck is home to scores of marine life and can be seen from the beach off Permatang Damar Laut.
