Nice place to have a meal in riverside cafe (decent food and drink, good price), nice breeze there.

We also spotted a squid and huge lizards in the river, see if you are lucky to see them in murky water. :)

I wish tourism tax went towards cleaning the river bank- full of plastic and other rubbish.

In the evening you can see name Kuantan in different colours.

Overall good place, there is a park for kids as well right by the tower.

Kuantan left very nice memories thanks to local people and ART street,

also Cempedak beach!

It's pleasant enough to see for a few minutes, but not worth any more than that... There is a nice cafe on the riverbank that is well worth a visit... separate review.

Walked along this esplanade the once only on the one overnight stay I had in Kuantan. It's a pleasant walking area. The area was relatively quiet and it's a peaceful place for a walk alongside a pretty River Kuantan.

Bring your family, young and old, for family bonding whilst taking a stroll along the Kuantan River waterfront. Do your exercises here too if you like. For the fisherman in you, dawn and dusk is the place to be to enjoy your passion.For the young and young at heart, the McD outlet along this stretch might be your hangout after a refreshing walk. Otherwise, there are numerous food outlets at the far end to whet your appetites, mostly Malay cuisine and Pahang food specialties. Parking spots may be limited during peak hours in the evening but worth the effort if you do not mind to walk a bit. Otherwise, enjoy the Kuantan River waterfront. Pretty soon, Kuantan Tower will be ready for more exciting adventures when you are in Kuantan. Awesome!

The breeze from the river is cooling and the sunset view is beautiful. There’s a small cluster of stalls selling Malay food. Some people are fishing along the esplanade, the river must be bountiful because I saw three birds of prey soaring and diving along the river. An observation tower is currently under construction. Once completed, it will surely attract more people to the esplanade. There’s definitely potential to develop this place into an attraction, but parking needs to be improved to handle more visitors.

Well built walk way along Kuantan River, where there are many local fish food stalls and pay toilets. Ideal for family picnics. McDonalds and Durian fruit stalls are only 100mts from here.

Lovely breeze as we strolled along the riverside. Well lit and concrete walk way. Some restaurants along the riverside. A nice thing to do after dinner.

We parked along the esplanade (which was very busy!) but we managed to find a place to park. There were a few fishermen but pretty quiet. There are quite a few small shops and a McDonalds for food/drinks. We were there for about 45mins and it was great to see the mangrove forests just off shore

Beautiful scenery especially during the evening. Nice spot for recreation and relaxing your mind. Joggers would like the place and fishing lovers.

a well maintained public space for you to walk or to rest awhile by the river or to let your kids play at the playground
