Asia's first Club Med and the nocturnal ritual of turtle nesting give Cherating its appeal.  Discover one of the finest beach spots on the east coast of the peninsula.

 

The calm blue waters of the South China Sea make Cherating one of the most alluring beach resorts in Malaysia. located 47 km north of Kuantan, the capital of Pahang, Cherating is home to the world famous Club Med. A number of water sports 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 surroundings. Look out for small entries by the roadside selling inexpensive local favourites and interesting stalls selling souvenirs.

 
 

Experience the rustic and laid-back atmosphere at the Cherating Village and take home a handicraft or batik souvenir. Chendor Beach, just a few minutes from Cherating is a favourite spot for turtle watching.  The turtle sanctuary here is where turtles come to lay eggs during the nesting period. 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 favourable.  Beserah, less then 10-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.
