"Teluk Cempedak, literally
translated as ?Jackfruit Bay?, is like Pahang?s very own Californian
boardwalk, which is a favourite to the locals. Located just 5km from
Kuantan, it is an enclosed bay, suitable for water sports like swimming,
surfing, sun-bathing, sailing, and jet skiing."



Teluk Cempedak, literally translated as ?Jackfruit Bay?, is likePahang?s very own Californian boardwalk, which is a favourisun-bathing, sailing, and jet skiing.

Along the beach lines pine trees and provide great spots for picnics or merely just sitting around enjoying the view. There are even rocky capes with the South China Sea waves lapping against it; perfect private corners for friends and couples who would like a little more space to themselves.

About 5km away on either side of Teluk Cempedak are the fishing villages of Tanjung Api and Beserah. On a good day, you can see fisherman out at sea on their tooting boats, waiting for the catch of the day.

At the seafront, numerous restaurants and food stalls serve a wide variety of food and beverage for your day out at Teluk Cempedak. There is even a McDonald?s drive-thru! There are also stalls set up selling trinkets for little kids to be happy with for the day at the beach with their mommies and daddies.

Take a stroll on the wooden walkway that connects Teluk Cempedak to Teluk Pelindung nearby, where waves crash up on the rock promontories there. As the name suggested (pelindung means ?protector? in Malay), it is a private bay away from the more bustling Teluk Cempedak. Families and friends can have their own private picnics there, and going for dips in the waters.

The nearby jungle area provides a quick introduction to Malaysia's flora and fauna, with a few different species of plant life, insects and other small animals inhabiting the limited space. Beware of the macaques, as they can be quite a nuisance!

From Kuantan town, take the coastal road and follow the sign to Teluk Chempedak. If you opt for public transportation, catch the No 39 bus from local bus station at Kuantan and it will take you to Teluk Chempedak for only 60 cents. Taxi
is also available for only RM5.


Sungai Lembing Tin Mines

Once a glorious town that was bustling all the time, Sungai Lembing has come a long way. The river water and rainfall gather into a basin in this unique valley where huge quantities of tin ore have been found. This kind of volume made commercial mining viable in the area.


Back in the days after WWII, demand for tin was high and the British miners, wanting to make the most of it, dug and dug and finally reached depths of almost 600m! This alone is a notable achievement.

Along with hard work at the tin mines, the townsfolk also knew how to party hearty and have fun! Cheap alcohol and great nightlife were available at Sungai Lembing during the 1950s.

The success of the town lasted 20 years but came to an abrupt end when recession hit in the 1970s. Today the mines are closed and the shafts have been flooded. Nothing much is left except for the town square, some shops and a single lonely red British postbox.

While the town is still open to visitors, it is plain that Sungai Lembing has seen a great deal and will never be the same again.
