The beach along Pantai Kok is dominated by mostly high-end upscale resorts like the Sheraton and Tanjung Sanctuary. The beach is beautiful with clean sands and clear waters but it’s the tourist attractions, as well as the relative peace and quiet, that makes this place so popular.
Lined with a thoroughly modern marina, Pantai Kok, on the western part of the island approximately 12km north of Pantai Cenang, fronts a beautiful bay surrounded by limestone hills and verdant jungle. On the waterfront, at Teluk Burau, is the spanking-new Telaga Harbour Park, a yachting marina with a string of shops, bars and restaurants, plus a petrol station, bank and post office. Additionally it has several recreational attractions including a cable-car ride to the peak of Mat Cincang Mountain and the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls.
Pantai Kok’s relatively undisturbed locale as well as its verdant greenery makes it doubly popular – especially if you love nature or want a quieter holiday destination.
