The jetty at Kuala Dungun is a favorite hangout at night for anglers. Nice place to fish and enjoy the cool evening breeze. The place and its surroundings are quite dark at night. There are stray dogs hanging around. Beware of them as you wouldn't want to be chased around town!
Swimming is prohibited on the Dungun stretch of beach. There's a warning sign somewhere. However, most peole ignore it. Be forewarned though... there are many cases of drowning here. The sea is rough especially during the monsoon period. The sea bed is also not a smooth landing. If you really want to swim, be sure to have a local with you.
