Sunrise At Beserah Beach Kuantan Malaysia

Situated ten kilometres from Kuantan, Beserah is a fishing village and is well-known for its salted fish. A unique practise of the Beserah fisherman is to employ water buffaloes (which are not normally seen on the beach for they are always used to plough paddy fields or to pull heavy carts), to transport fish from the boats to the processing area.


It also boasts a batik factory, many cottage handicraft workshops producing items made mostly of sea shells and plant materials such as dried nuts and leaves.


Beserah is also situated south of Balok. It is a rustic fishing village and a good place if you want to just laze around and watch the comings and goings of the local fishermen who occasionally pass by, busy with their own business.


It was quite interesting to watch a fisherman using a triangular net to catch fish, patiently trawling the shoreline. If you're lucky, you can see water buffaloes used to haul the fishermen's catch from the boat to land.
