Batu Hitam (Black Stone Beach), Balok, Kuantan

Driving back from Kuantan Port we decided to stop off at Batu Hitam (Black Stone Beach) in the Balok area of Kuantan. It is about a 15-20 minute drive from Kuantan town and is located along the coastline a short distance before Swiss Garden Resort & Spa (travelling from Kuantan town).

Batu Hitam is famous for the numerous black rocks strewn across the sand. It's great for a visit, and of course, for me, it's a great photography opportunity too! Obviously, it's best to go when the tide is out.

  8. Came here for a family trip a lifetime ago. But we didn't actually go down to the beach and I remember being so disappointed (as a kid) at not being able to do so. Now I get to see it through your pictures. Found your listing on expat-blog and thought I would stop by to say hello. Great stuff! Thank you.
