PRISTINE SANDY BEACHES
Cherating is located about 50 kilometres north of Kuantan, nestling on the Terengganu-Pahang border and fronting the South China Sea. Here, wide and gentle sloping sandy beaches extend as far as the eye can sea and it is a prefect place for a quiet holiday.
THE TURTLE SANCTUARY
This sanctuary is a tribute to the gentle giants of the South Seas – the near extinct Leatherback turtles, that made Chendor Beach their destination of choice to lay their eggs. The Chendor Turtle Sanctuary is located only few minutes drive from Cherating. A small turtle information centre, a souvenir kiosk, and turtle pools with live Green or Ridley turtles are kept for conservation pruposes. It is a recommended spot for turtle watching.
