Terengganu embodies the beauty of the sea, sun and winds.
With approximately 244 km of magical coastline (minus the islands), broken
intermittently by mangroves, rugged cliffs and rocky outcrops edging into
The warm, golden sandy stretches that run almost endlessly from
Kuala Besut in the north to Cukai in the south, oftentimes in secluded
palm fringed coves and bays, are diverse in mood and character, strongly
reflecting their ageless natural environment or scarce human habitation.
Here, you will not find a flood of "body to body" humanity of sun-seekers
on the beach, as you would on Bondi Beach in Australia or Waikiki Beach in
Hawaii. Here, you have space and time to surrender yourself fully to the
pleasure of sun, surf and sea, and to reenergize your body, mind and soul
in closeness with nature. There are dozens of beaches to suit your fancy,
from popular holiday retreats of long stretches of golden sands to small
coves that offer seclusion and absolute tranquility, all easily accessible
by the long picturesque coastal highway.
