Batu Buruk Beach

Our rating:

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.
