Monica Bay or the malay name is Pantai Teluk Mak Nik, is the name of the beach south of Kuala Kemaman town.

Normally if I am heading north and are passing through Kemaman, I would make a stop at the northern end nearer the river estuary at Kuala Kemaman to buy keropok lekor and satar to munch. Rantau Abang, didn't really stop there, just passed through. Long stretch of...More
