Teluk Chempedak Beach Kuantan
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.
