Teluk Chempedak Beach in Kuantan, Pahang

Last month during the school holidays, my parents took us to Kuantan, Pahang. We stayed at the Hyatt Regency Hotel at Teluk Chempedak where the hotel is just beside the beach.

Although I like the beaches in Penang, I actually enjoyed Teluk Chempedak beach more. I enjoyed playing on the beach, building sandcastles and looking for shells. But mostly I loved swimming in the sea with my sister and brother, while my parents go shopping or meeting their friends in town.

For fast food, there is a McDonald restaurant nearby where we will head to buy burgers and french fries in between our playing on the beach.

And at night, under the stars on the beach, we loved watching the twinkling lights of ships and fishing boats far out at sea.

Well, my family and I really enjoyed Teluk Chempedak beach in Kuantan. Although we have not been to other beaches in Pahang yet, it's our favorite beach for now.

Teluk Chempedak Beach is great

Hi Nor Aziah,

When I first came to Kuantan (to work) in 1978, Teluk Chempedak was the first beach in Pahang I visited.

And I was astounded for a moment by the beauty of the waters and beach. Like you, I also enjoyed swimming and playing on the beaches with my friends then.

The beach is great because it is a bay (teluk); thus the sea is comparatively calm.

But do know that there are periods, like the end of the year during the monsoon season, when it is not advisable to swim in the sea because of dangerous under-currents.

The raised red flag on the pole (beside the life-guards watch-tower on the beach) will warn of this danger. So do be careful.

Anyway, glad you enjoyed Teluk Chempedak beach in Pahang.
