Approximately 84 km south of Ipoh is the quiet coastal town of Lumut
which is now the base of the Royal Malaysian Navy and the jumping-off
point to Pangkor island. Many locals, however, do not take the ferry
to Pangkor but instead head for Teluk Batik, a pleasant beach about
6 km from Lumut. Here the white sands and swaying coconut trees
make it an ideal site for relaxation and swimming. At low tide,
some hard corals become visible. Chalet accommodation is available.
Contact the Manager of Teluk Batik Chalets.
