Try the Grilled Fish at Batu Hitam:
When you come from Kuantan and as you drive up from Beserah along the coastal road northwards –
if you go all the way you will reach Trengganu state after about 50 km-- you will find along the
way many restaurants and food-stalls selling local and seafood specialities.

picnic with family
Of course the special dish that attract visitors is the "ikan bakar", or grilled fish. At most
restaurants, you can pick the fish of your choice -- some are still alive and kept in the
aquarium to allow the customers to choose both the specie and size. The popular fish for grilling
is the kerapu, bawal and tenggiri.
Even if the fish is not alive, they are usually fresh and usually picked and chosen from the
catch of the day and brought out directly from the fishermen’s boat.
black stones :
Batu Hitam beach is about 10 km from Kuantan. Its peculiarity is that there is a stretch of black
stones at the otherwise white sandy beach. That’s the reason for its name – "Batu Hitam" in Malay
means “Black Stones”.
As the black sand glitters under the blazing sun washed by the waves of the South China Sea, it
will be a sight to behold!!
Other than the prominence of the black stones there, you will also find that there are ample
space for camping and enjoying by the beach and sea. Here at Batu Hitam beach, the visitors
mostly come to picnic with the family and to swim in the sea. After the swim, you can clean
yourself as there is a bath and toilet facility at the place.
Another favorite beach with the locals and Malaysian week-enders is Batu Hitam beach. Coming from
Kuantan, about 10 km away, the Batu Hitam Kampung or village is actually on the left side of the
road and the beach on the right across the road.
The beach area is usually crowded during week-ends by picnickers from far and near.
