Black Stone Beach
Black Stone Beach most certainly is one of the more unique beaches in Kuantan. It is called black stone beach due to the dark coloured (dark grey to black) stones and rocks at the beach. This beach is one of the places where local beach anglers go to wet their lines. Fishes tend to hide out around rocks and there are plenty of rocks for them to hide out at.

One can walk about the black stones (rocks) that line the beach during the low tides and observe the many denizens of the sea that are trapped momentarily at pools of water amongst the rocks. This beach is windy most of the time making it a great place to fly kites too.

There are food stalls beside the parking area of the beach serving local food at decent prices. Should they be closed during your visit, a few minute’s drive away are stalls and restaurants that serve local food (along the main road).
