Pantai Batu Rakit
Quaint Fishing Villages
Take the road from Kuala Terengganu past the airport on the right to Merang (3645) and look for the small coastal road T145. This road is quite scenic and takes you along the beach past rustic kampong houses under the shadows of scores of coconut trees. Follow your instincts and stop by at the roadside where the beach is just a short walk away. If you happen to be there at the right time, you can find some fishing boats and fishermen mending their nets on the beach next to scores of fish traps laid out to dry. The boats are brightly coloured and make stunning photos. The beach stretches for miles and with a camera in hand, shoot away at the sweeping views of the beach and the boats.
