Although Georgetown has many city hotels, leisure travelers often choose to stay at one of the beach resorts 30 minutes away at Batu Feringgi. Trips back and forth can be a bother (regardless of the resorts' free shuttle services), but unless you're staying in a resort, most of the finer beaches are off-limits.
