Ventured out of Club Med and explored the length of the golden sand beach. Excellent for a sunrise walk. It feels great to be so close to the sea and take everything in. Quiet place, no disruption.

A fab place with a wonderful feel about it. Very relaxed and friendly people everywhere. Great for kids.

There were a few jellyfish in the water when we were there but other than that amazing.

We had a wonderful time at this beach. It’s clean and the warm shallow waters are perfect to hang out with the little kids. We were here between surf and kite surf season. Maybe this makes a difference? You could feel the surfing vibes in the beach bars and in the ritme of life here.

For Malaysia, this is a really fun beach, for Thailand it would be like low season on Samui. Some good surfing which is the main draw here

most of the east coast is a long straight beach and much of it a bit dull and much of it has loads of plastic washed up at the tideline. Cherating is in a proper bay with an attractive headland at the northern end.

its a good surf beach and when i was there although the waves were less than a metre they were amazingly powerful.

part of the village are a bit run down but this is an interesting spot to chillout at.

It was much of my surprise that this one of the clean beach that I found in recent time. Windy, nice hot sun and a perfect location to unwind.

While waiting for our River Safari Cruise, we had 3 hours to fill in.

Beach Garden Cherating Cafe was great as we laze away to drinks, music by the radio DJ and a great sea view.

Food was surprisingly, (excuse my initial bias) good and fresh.

9 of us played darts and cards as we are grilled sotong (fresh tasting), lamb chop was good, not too gamey and tender. Other grills as chicken and wings were great tasting too. Crispy fries and nasi goreng - tasty.

Beef steak is good for local beef standard. Don't rate it in comparison to aged beef.

If you are as capable of Lepak as myself,you will like this place.

We had a chance to explore two of the beaches in or near Cherating on the Monday and Tuesday of the second week of July. The beach near Cherating River with its mangroves has accommodation, equipment hire, bars and cafes. It was a very quiet time to visit. There were a couple of kite surfers out on the water but the bars seemed mostly closed.

On the other side of Cherating River the beach does a long shallow curve down to Kuantan. We were staying at Casa Titik and enjoyed a 5 km walk (return) up north and another 8 km walk (return) down to Sanctuary Resort and back without hardly seeing anyone. It was so peaceful. There were hermit crab holes and we could see them scurry across the sand and saw one or two in their holes as well. Most hotels and resorts have beach access though there are also public paths as well. It was so quiet that Sanctuary Resort’s café wasn’t open even just for drinks, but the kind manager pointed us towards the main road and we found a couple of roadside places that were. However, we tended to drive into the area near Cherating River to eat at night.
