Cherating village is a small fishing village in Pahang. This coastal settlement has a plethora of local attractions and activities for you to indulge in. It is located 75.1 miles away from Taman Negara (30 km north of Kuantan on Peninsular Malaysia's East Coast). It won’t be a perfect afternoon without yachting or surfing or a long swim at the beach. Don’t forget to visit the nearby turtle sanctuary to see the turtles laying their eggs (between July and August). On a clear, sunny day, flying kites on the beach was more fun than I have ever imagined.
