Facts about Desaru; An Untouched Beach in Johor - Fascinating Information on Johor's Unspoiled Beach hub Desaru

Tipped to be one of the most pristine beaches in Johor, Desaru is a well-kept secret among local beachgoers. Here are some fascinating facts regarding this stunning piece of paradise.


Beach Haven

The main natural attribute and chief attraction for all visitors heading to this part of Johor is, of course, Desaru Beach. Stretched across 6km the white and pristine beach is as spectacular as it gets in this part of the country. With stunning views over the South China Sea, the beach is not only ideal for couples and families but also for those in search of a private, beachside hideaway. What sets this beach apart from similar seaside venues across Johor is its decidedly tranquil and laid back atmosphere. One would be hard-pressed to find a more relaxed beach hub in Johor. What's more, the warm water and the calm seas make it an excellent place to enjoy swimming activities.


Cheap Seafood Treats Galore

One of the lesser-known facts about Desaru Beach is that it's a treasure trove for seafood lovers. Not only is the seafood available in restaurants along the beach freshly caught and prepared but the price points are also affordable. In fact, Desaru is known to offer the best price for seafood dishes in Johor as the abundance of seafood makes prawns, mussels, crabs and other seafood items mean restaurants can retail the dishes prepared from the ingredients at a more reasonable price. One of the most popular seafood dining hubs on the beach includes the Sengat Seafood Restaurant while those who prefer to cruise while they eat can hop onboard the floating Bujang Seafood Restaurant.


Fruity Paradise

Beach hotspots are rarely known to house fruit farms and gardens due to the specific climatic conditions required to grow most fruits. Desaru is clearly the exception as fruit farms are part and parcel of this spectacular beach paradise. The Desaru Fruit Farm is the best-known cultivator of juicy fruits in the area which are not limited to durians and guavas. Durian is another popular fruit variety found at the farm which is known to cultivate more than 100 types of fruits and herbs in all. This makes Desaru the perfect beach getaway option for vegan and vegetarian tourists.


Family-Friendly Resort Town

Home to natural bays and calm, shallow waters, Desaru beach is well-suited for family vacations. Ideally located bordering a picturesque fishing village, the beach resort town is also within close range of Tanjung Balau and similar seaside villages which provide excellent day trip possibilities for visitors.


Unlikely Golf Mecca

Regardless of whether one is based at the Anantara Desaru Coast Residences or any similar beach villas in Malaysia or a hotel in the heart of town, access to top-notch golfing facilities is a given in Desaru. Although the area's golfing greens and dramatic backdrops are not as well-known as other golfing hotspots in the country, the facilities are no less impressive than the scenic locations of the courses themselves.
