- The Teluk Cempedak is the most famous beach in Kuantan, but it is not the only one with the scenic views. The chaos of colours in the sky at the break of dawn draws out even the laziest people out of their bed to greet the sun early in the morning on the beach. There are turtle sanctuaries on beaches like Pantai Sepat and Batu Hitam that encourage the tourists to raise their voice against marine pollution and overfishing. These beaches are an excellent place to take the kids on vacation. Enjoy basking the sun on the beaches on Kuantan, on the white sand and the dappled shade of the pine trees.
- Sungai Pandan Waterfall is quite close to the Kuantan Airport, just across the Coastal Expressway. The waterfall is at a bit of a hike into the rocky jungle, but it is worth the climb. The natural formation of the waterfall over the rocky steps of the escarpment surrounded by lush green forest is breathtaking. The tourist spot has been developed significantly, with benches and food stalls on either side of the stream flowing out away from the waterfall. However, the environment there still retains its natural rawness. Dip your feet in the shallow waters of the creek and the fish will delicately nibble the inert skin giving you a pedicure.
- The Sultan Ahmed Shah State Mosque’s gleaming white dome can be seen from everywhere in the downtown area. The mosque has been built in the early ’90s in a modern Moorish-Ottoman style. The central location of the mosque and the blue-green motifs on its walls and minarets counters the busy historical district of the other side of the road – materialism versus spirituality. The state mosque has been named after the first Sultan of the Royal House of Pahang.
