Teluk Chempedak Beach Kuantan

Teluk Chempedak is a lovely beach just 5km away from Kuantan. The nature of its enclosed bay makes it perfect for water sport activities like swimming, surfing and jet-skiing. The beaches are lined with casuarina trees and at certain places, are quite rocky.

Many restaurants and food stalls line the shore, open for business till the wee hours of the morning and serving a wide variety of food and beverages. For those into nature, Teluk Chempedak has some nice flora and fauna to admire. This is through the Teluk Chempedak forest reserve which has a range of trails for visitors to explore. Do beware of the macaques, which are naughty monkeys that are quick to steal your food when you're not looking.

A popular shady beach located here is called Tanjung Pelindung. It literally translates to ' Cape of Refuge'; decades ago, when the Japanese invaded Malaya and landed on the beach, villagers fled to this secluded coastal spot to take refuge, giving birth to its name.

The white sandy beach and the beautiful casuarinas and pine trees line the coast, with some rocky promontories facing the incessant waves of the South China Sea. All these combined to make the beach serene and at the same time delightful.

You can see the boats of the fishermen at sea during the day, and the twinkling lights of their boats at night. The fishing village of Tanjung Api and Beserah is only about 5 km away on either side of Teluk Chempedak.

Engage yourself in water sports at Telok Chempedak. You can swim, sun-bathe, sail, surf, water-ski and jet scooter, to your heart’s delight. And its a perfect place to unwind after a tough business meeting.

Or bring your mat and towel, put on your screen lotion, and just laze on the white sandy beach. Bathe in the sunlight…… and then in the evening watch the sunset over the sea horizon. You can take a stroll on the wooden walkway at Teluk Pelindung nearby, and watch the waves breaking on the rocks of the promontory. Go for a jungle trek there and observe the diversity of trees lining the forest and watch out for its inhabitants -- assorted varieties of birds, insects, squirrels and monkeys are there.
