Cherating is located about 45 kilometers north of Kuantan, nesting on the Terengganu-Pahang border and fronting the South China sea. Here, wide gently sloping sandy beaches extend as far as the eyes can see and it is a perfect place for a quiet holiday.
Cherating was discovered in the 1960s, by backpackers who stayed at guesthouses and wooden huts among the coconut groves by the sea. Cherating became well known among visitors since around 1970s when a family called Mak Long Teh share their house with visitors. Today, there are world-class hotels and chalets, including the world renowned Club Med.
Visitors can begin their vacation by strolling along the white sandy beach. A walk on the beach will offer opportunity to collect beautiful seashells and occasionally you may find tiny crabs struggling to find their way out of the sea.
