There are some local eateries that you cannot miss! Kim Laksa sells one of the best Asam Laksa in Balik Pulau. Jia Sang Cafe is a go to for seafood (might be a bit far). Restoran Peladang is also a great place for more options.
There is a government hospital nearby, Hospital Balik Pulau Pinang, located at Jalan Balik Pulau.
In Balik Pulau town, there are two colleges, one is a vocational college and the other offers IB courses at Mara Junior Science College.
Balik Pulau is a great holiday destination to get away from the noise of the city, but it might not be the most ideal for the development of youngsters who wants to further study.
