15 Beaches In Malaysia To Be Featured In 101 Best Asia

October 21, 2014 Destination ASEAN No Comments Email Email

Imagine a job that required you to visit Asia’s most beautiful beaches and then nominate which of them are worthy of inclusion in a list of the region’s best.

That is the assignment that renowned Australian conservationist, Brad Farmer, and photographer Jaka Adamic, have set themselves. The two of them are visiting Malaysia from 14 to 28 October to undertake the enviable task of inspecting, evaluating and documenting the beautiful beaches in the nation for Brad’s new book, 101 Best Beaches.Com Asia.

Malaysia boast an embarrassment of great beaches, and Brad and Jaka have worked with Tourism Malaysia to narrow the list down to a total of 15 beaches from 10 states for the two-week long reconnaissance mission including Pantai Desaru in Johor; Pulau Perhentian and Pulau Redang in Terengganu; Pantai Cenang in Pulau Langkawi, Kedah; Pantai Teluk Kemang in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan; Pantai Juara in Pulau Tioman, Pahang; Pantai Batu Feringghi in Penang; and Pulau Pangkor in Perak – all in Western Malaysia.

Nor has the eastern part of the country been ignored, with beaches Tanjung Datu and Pantai Santubong in Sarawak; Tanjung Aru, Pulau Mantanani, Pulau Sipadan and Pulau Sibuan in Sabah; and Pantai United Nations in Labuan also making the cut.

101 Best Beaches.Com Asia will profile and showcase the diversity and beauty of Asia’s beaches from those beside rivers and lakes to the more familiar resort-style beaches and should appeal to beach enthusiasts the world over. It is the second such book by Brad and follows his highly successful 101 Best Australian Beaches, the world’s first authoritative guidebook of Australian beaches supported by Tourism Australia.
