The beach is not well maintained. A lot of rubbish around and very dirty. Not much visitors/ tourists during my visit. Management have to do something to improve it

The Bidara beach literally translates into the Fairy beach in local Malay language. Perhaps its isolated and off the beaten track reputation gives inspiration to local fairytales. The sand is mildly coarse and golden brown in color typical to any beach on the Terengganu mainland coastline (only the islands boast fine white sandy beaches). For those seeking some isolation and... More

The beach is clean but the wave is quite rough when we were here. The bad part is, the beach quite empty, could not see people around nor any stall to grab a food while watching the seas

Once I decide to overlook that I could truly appreciate how beautiful and pristine the beach is in this part of Malaysia. I would love for... More
