Other Beaches in Malaysia



Every weekend, Malaysians in the south state of Johor flock to Desaru, a 25 stretch of warm beach just 98km away from its capital Johor Bahru. The water sports industry is at its zenith here. Water skiing, canoeing and catamaran sailing activities are some of the developments in this famous beach. Other activities you can do include horse-riding, archery, camping and off-road adventures in 4x4 vehicles.

Rantau Abang


Rantau Abang is the only location in Malaysia where the massive leatherback; the largest turtle species on Earth, comes to nest every year. Between May and September, visitors who come here to Rantau Abang in Dungun, Terengganu, will get a rare glimpse of leatherbacks climbing the gentle beach slopes to lay their eggs and return to the sea.
