There are many beautiful beaches in Malaysia. Today I would like to tell about cherating. Located in pahang state, it is one of the famous beaches in malaysia. This place still preserves its nature with the beautiful and refreshing scenery. If you want to visit cherating, there are many facilities available such as hotel, chalet and sport activity.
Here are some information about Cherating :
Located 47 km north of Kuantan, the capital of Pahang. A number of water sport such as catamaran sailing and kayaking can be enjoyed here. The excellent wind conditions in Cherating make it the perfect site for windsurfing and kite flying. Hire a bicycle and explore the beach surrounding. Look out for small eateries by the roadside selling inexpensive local favorites and interesting stalls selling souvenirs.
The old Cherating Village has a blend of modern and traditional. A stretch of road about 1km long runs parallel to the beach, dotted with charming and comfortable chalets, many of which face the beach front. Experience the rustic and laid-back atmosphere at the Cherating Village and take home a handicraft or batik souvenir.
Nearer to the town of Kuantan are the beaches of Teluk Chempedak and Balok. Sailing, windsurfing and waterskiing can be enjoyed when wind and sea conditions are favorable. Beserah, less than ten minutes from Kuantan is a fishing village. An interesting sight here is water buffaloes on the beach transporting fish to the markets at certain times of the year.
Cherating is a 5-hour drive from Kuala Lumpur via the scenic route to the east coast. There are buses to Kuantan departing daily from Kuala Lumpur. From Kuantan, there are regular bus and taxi services to Cherating. Alternatively, take a bus from Kuala Lumpur to Dungun or Kemaman in Terengganu, and disembark at Cherating.
