“This place attracts hundreds of surfers especially during monsoon season. During summer, you can join the local going fishing and you'll surely remember your catch. Fishing activities here is one of the main attraction for the locals. Because of the lack of publicity, this fishing haven is still unknown to the tourists. For photographers, try to be early here to catch the mesmerizing sunrise.”

Natural Feature
“Cherating is a popular beach resort area in Pahang. It is located about 58 km from the homestay. Cherating village is a typical small lazy East Coast fishing village although backpacker-tourism now is the major income earner here. The village, which is just off the main East Coast trunk road between Kuantan and Kuala Terengganu is dotted with guesthouses and small hotels (called chalets here). Asia's first Club Med is also located here. The place is extremely laid-back and the beach is nice and wide, although not as beautiful as the beaches on the islands off the East Coast.”
