Imagine a job that required you to visit Asia's most beautiful beaches and then nominate which of them are worthy of inclusion in a list of the region's best. That is the assignment that renowned Australian conservationist, Brad Farmer, and photographer Jaka Adamic, have just completed. Late last year the two of them travelled around Malaysia to undertake the enviable task of inspecting, evaluating and documenting the most beautiful beaches in the nation for Brad's new book, 101 Best Beaches.Com Asia. Malaysia is blessed with some of the most spectacular beaches on the planet. With almost 900 scattered islands, and a vast 5,000km coastline on both sides of the Malaya Peninsula and along the coast of Borneo, the country offers beach holiday destinations to suit every taste and budget.
Brad and Jaka have carefully researched and reviewed the best of the best beaches across the country, beach by beach, selecting 15 beaches worthy of inclusion in their book. The final list offers up everything from eco-nature exploring, world-renowned diving and snorkelling, resort swimming and watersports – or simply the opportunity to slow down and make the best of your holiday.
But both admit that the destination winners are likely to whet the appetite of travellers to visit more Malaysian beaches, and experience the extraordinary diversity of cultures, coastline, and foods for which Malaysia is famous. In fact, the biggest challenge for many travellers might simply be choosing where to start. In which case, 101 BEST BEACHES.COM ASIA will make the selection process a little easier.
Malaysia is one of the world's most visited countries for good reason, and its stunning beaches are a big part of that appeal. So kick off your shoes, feel the sand between your toes and wade into Malaysia's best beaches.
