Batu Buruk Beach
What we say:
Kuala Terengganu's main "city beach", Batu Buruk lies to the southeast of town, a 10-minute cab ride from the bus station.
As with many city beaches, you won't see this strip of sand splashed across the cover of National Geographic, but, if you're looking for some sand and sea to while away a few hours, you could do far worse.
While we visited in the morning, our taxi driver advised that the afternoon and evening is a better time to come as an evening market sets up with food stands and plenty of hawkers. In the morning, as we found, the beach is deserted -- note Pulau Kapas in the distance to the south.
There is accommodation on the beach, including the Batu Buruk Beach Resort, but we'd venture staying in town is a better deal to have access to a better range of eateries.
