    Visit Batu Layar Beach and Teluk Punggai Beach

    by genie47 Updated Jun 13, 2005
    Batu Layar Beach

    Head down south towards Punggai along Trunk Route 90 and you will come to this beach. If you like the idea of a deserted beach, this will qualify. Unspoilt in many ways. Batu Layar Beach has very interesting rock formation

    Further down south along this road is Teluk Punggai Beach. Again another deserted beach.

    Both are excellent places to see the ocean and an unspoilt shoreline

    Fireflies tour

    by genie47 Updated Apr 4, 2010

    Desaru resorts usually schedule a fireflies tour at night. Just pay the fee and go.

    I have no pictures to show due to the inadequate night photography abilities of a prosumer digicam.

    Do you know that the human eye is most sensitive to light. A match that is lit 5 miles away can be seen if there is unobstructed view in a clear night?

    Similarly, your eyes have to experience the glow of the fireflies. No photograph will do justice to this marvel.

    The area is a mangrove swamp of sorts. Mosquitoes abound so bring that repellant.

    Update 2010

    Its been years since the last fireflies visit. The boat has been upgraded to a huge barge taking up to 20 or more tourists at one go. Fireflies are still there. The jetty now has a restaurant of sorts. The road leading to the jetty is now a paved road instead of the dirt road when I first went in 2004.

    It costs around MYR15 per person and the resorts charge MYR40 per adult and MYR25 per child. If you got to the resort by personal transport the GPS coordinates for the Sg Lebam Firefly Cruise Jetty is:

    +1deg 33' 43.01", +104deg 10' 58.47"

    5 mins away from the Kota Tinggi Waterfall homes a pottery estate. Peter Loh built this workshop & kiln over the years as his retirement project.

    The beach at Tanjung Balau (after the rain)

    It is a sleepy fishing village. It has one moderately priced resort and budget chalets. A tiny beach with lots of rocks. The long jetty is its main feature.
