Nenasi has a fascinating fishing village view. It is located at Eash Coast of Penisular Malaysia.
Almost an hour drive from Pahang's capital - Kuantan. From Johor Bahru (JB), if you follow the East Coast trunk road (passing by Mersing), it will take 3-4 hours drive. It is a town after Rompin, and before Pekan.
I drove back Kuantan from JB last weekend, happened to pass by Nenasi. I turned right to the "heart" of the small town. It is a very quiet and peaceful place. Some fishing boats and wooden houses. Saw a Seafood restraurant, with a name called "Nenasi Seafood", operated by a Chinese lady. Thought of have a cheap, good and fresh seafood there. We ordered fried noodles with prawn (about 10 pieces), for three of us. It tasted OK but the prawn is not so wonderful fresh. You know how much it costs? RM20!! It is considered very expensive for a small town like that. I black listed the seafood restraurant immediately, no future visit to the same restraurant! And the Milo also costs me RM1 a cup, which is expensive too.
Nenasi is a wonderful area for camping and beach activities. Not the town itself which is only home to a fishing community, but the outskirts. There are wonderful swamps, ancient rice fields, rivers and tiny kampongs to explore, lots of walking trails. The beach is long, usually very shaded (except in Nenasi town itself) and just a great place to fish, barbecue, camp, swim and do nothing. From the main road - before or after the town - you need to drive/walk towards the beach and pass a low water ditch before getting to the beach itself.
Favorite thing: The first moment you drive in, you can see this view with a vast sea shore and village houses with power cables as decoration hanging high above all.
Favorite thing: Here is a shot of beach from the fishing village of Nenasi. The village is tranquil and very good for photo shootings and experience village life.
Favorite thing: Nenasi has a very important noticeboard placed right in the entrance of it and it stated "Pray before you being prayed". In Malay "Sembahyanglah kamu sebelum kamu disembahyangkan". This is probably the best way to teach villagers to be good.
