Malaysia’s lesser travelled east coast offers visitors a slower pace of life and a more traditional setting than the better known west coast resorts. With wonderful sandy beaches and tropical marine life it makes the perfect relaxing beach holiday, and for those wanting to learn more about cultural Malaysia then small fishing communities and larger trading towns are there to be explored.
Just off the idyllic coastline lies several small islands with pristine white sands and lush inland jungles; the sparsely inhabited Redang and Tioman Islands can both be accessed by flight direct from Kuala Lumpur or Singapore, plus the coastal towns of Kuantan and Kuala Terengganu also have convenient nearby airports.
Often overlooked in favour of Penang and Langkawi, Malaysia's golden east coastline may be less popular than its counterparts, but that doesn’t mean it should be missed.
Ideal for those seeking to tread a path less travelled, the flip side of its fewer patrons means its beautiful tropical beaches can be all-but-deserted, its islands make you feel like a veritable castaway and the pace of life is indulgently slower.
With miles of lush rainforest to be explored too, East Coast Malaysia’s unspoiled beaches and islands make it the perfect tropical escape.
