Cherating

3.6
A small beach town on the east coast of Malaysia and the location of Asia’s first Club Med resort, Cherating these days thrives on backpacker tourism. Whether staying at the resort or in simple bungalow, a Cherating holiday remains a popular choice for those who want to surf, relax, swim, drink, and eat. A wide beach, pristine blue waters, and swaying coconut trees set the scene, while the bars along the main strip give Cherating a reputation for the best nightlife in Pahang. The town also retains its village feel, so don’t be shocked to find more monkeys, lizards, and cats walking around than humans. Cherating is in Kuantan District.

Where to stay in Cherating

Various other small resorts vie with Club Med for guests who prefer amenities, while backpackers generally stick to simple guesthouses and small hotels. Most options sit close to the town's beach and main collection of bars, but a few small resorts occupy quieter environs. The village houses plenty of affordable guesthouses, though be aware that if you’re here to surf in monsoon season, they will fill up quickly. Midrange accommodation fills up on weekends year-round, so book ahead in these instances.
