Batu Hitam, Kuantan

Batu Hitam is the name of a beach in Kuantan.

It translates as "black rock" and you'll see why it's named that soon. We went there for the first time recently with a couple of our neighbours.

I wanted to collect a load of seashells to decorate our living room (which I accomplished) and also to go and see the black rocks which it is famous for.

Batu Hitam is located further north up the east coastline from our usual beach visits to Teluk Chempedak. Still, Batu Hitam is only an extra 10-15 minutes drive.

Here come the black rocks covered with golden remnants of seashells

There were a number of people fishing here at various points along the coast

It appears that the black rocks are lined with treasure!

Here's a small collection of some of the shells we discovered:

Vilka fantastiska bilder på de svarta klipporna. Det ser ut som de är täckta av guld.
Snäckorna är ju riktigt vackra.
Det är otroligt att det blir såna häftiga skal.Tänk att det har bott små djur i dem.
Era barn är supersöta.
Kramizzz. Mysig helg!
