Cherating Malaysia

The calm blue waters of the South China Sea make Cherating one of the most all alluring beach resots in Malaysia.


Located 17 kilometers 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 perfect windsurf and kite flying.

Hire a bicycle and explore the beach surroundings. Look out for small eateries by 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 than ten 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 years.
