Cher­at­ing, Pa­hang

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Travel -

the laid-back fish­ing vil­lage of Pa­hang about 30km north of Kuan­tan gained pop­u­lar­ity as the site of Asia’s first Club Med. Be­gin­ners can take lessons at the surf school on the beach, while more ad­vanced surfers can en­joy a swell that goes up to 1.5m.

It is not un­com­mon to find point breaks – a re­ally long wave cre­ated with per­fect nat­u­ral con­di­tions – that lets you ride for up to 500m.

As a bonus for an­i­mal lovers, head over to the nearby tur­tle sanc­tu­ary to learn more about the cen­tre’s con­ser­va­tion and preser­va­tion ef­forts of the en­dan­gered leatherback tur­tle species.
