Penang Isle: The Nautilus Bay (Karpal Singh Drive)

Completed a few years ago, this new seaside walkway that stretches along the coastline of Jelutong Expressway, is also dubbed the ‘New Gurney’ by the locals here.  This walkway is a popular place for joggers as well as fishing hobbyists. At the center of the walkway lies the 4-blue-pylons sculpture made by renowned artist NAKAYAMA Hitori.

The promenade is now renamed as Karpal Singh Drive in honor of Karpal Singh, a prominent politician hailing from Penang who passed away in an accident in 2014.
