Desaru Map

DESARU, located on the eastern tip of the Malay Peninsula, has clean sandy white beaches and it is popular with tourists as well as locals. The 25km long stretch of unspoiled beach framed by the South China Sea on one side and lush tropical forest on the other, is home to many hotels and resorts ready to take in new guests.

The numerous resorts and hotels here cater to budget travelers as well as families seeking fun in the sun. Activities are largely available and include golfing, horseback riding, tennis, canoeing, swimming, boating, fishing, snorkeling, jungle trekking, and you can even enjoy yourselves in the local theme park.

The beaches are lined with casuarinas trees and interrupted here and there by rustic fishing villages. To make your visit more memorable, visit Tanjung Pengelih to see the relics of World War II and the historical relics of the Malay Johor Riau Empire at Johor Lama.

But the one thing that makes people come back to Desaru is the beach. It is clean and no matter the resort you are staying in, you can still enjoy the same clean and sandy beach. The beach is quite unique as the sand is quite grayish and you can walk nearly 50 meters into the sea without it getting deeper than 4 feet (1.5 m).  Desaru has one of the best beaches of Johor mainland.
