If you are coming from Kuantan, use the coastal scenic highway route 3 towards Kemaman. After reaching Kemaman, go further up and you will reach the town of Kijal. Drive for another 10 minutes or so and look out for the sign "Pantai Kemasik". Follow the signage and you will not miss this beach.
This beach has clean and clear water due to its location which is facing the South China Sea. There isn't any mud on the beach and hence this is a good place to take a stroll and enjoy the breeze of the wind. There are many palm trees that grow along the shore of the beach. There are some nice rocks at the end of the beach where you can take some photo shots as a momento of your trip to the east coast.
As there is changing and toilet facilities here, you can play and swim at the beach from the months of April to October. The sea can be quite rough during the months of November to March as this time is the North Easterly monsoon season. If you have yet to see any fishing village on your trip here, drop by the fishing village which is located at the river mouth of Sungai Kemasik.Enjoy your stroll time at the beach.
