“Desaru - Village of Casuarina.”
Review of Desaru Beach

Desaru Beach
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Had gone to another colleague's wedding, this time at Felda Air Tawar 2 which is 30km from Desaru. Using the Senai Desaru expressway is a breeze to get to Desaru. Desaru the name implies - "Village of Casuarina", You can see lots of these trees lining the beach area. It is a nice place to relax by the sea, away from the busy city life to de-stress. Just outside the junction of Desaru and the Expressway is a building complex where you can get nice coffee and food at Chamek Kopitiam. Kopitiam is a Chinese dialect which means Coffee Shop. You should try the Roti Canai there. Housed nearby is a shop selling fishing gears for fishing enthusiasts and another selling local snacks for those who like to snack.

Basically overcrowded and water is not clean nor clear. It is just another murky beach which was overrated because of the resorts built alongside to it.

Never thought Desaru Beach would be this clean and clear water...the private beach at Pulai Desaru Beach Resort very well kept by the resort...

It was a beautiful beach an hour away from Singapore! No public transport from Johor Bahru main to there so we took a cab. For four people we paid only 130 ringgit which was 60sgd. Not bad.
The beach was excellent. It was very clean when we went there. Not populated. Good to relax, good place to get away from singapore hustle and bustle city life. Hotels are beach front. Cool . Can swim not so deep for many meters away from shore. Quite strong current though. :)
