" Getting its name from a `village of casuarinas or palms`, Desaru in Johor has a stretch of about 25KM of white, sandy beach and lush tropical greenery."

Twenty-five kilometres of white, sandy beach and lush tropical greenery makes up Desaru - the most popular beach in Johor.  Located 98km north east of Johor Bahru, Desaru, or also known as the 'Village of Casuarinas', was developed by the South Johor Development Authority (KEJORA) to boost tourism industry in Johor.

Desaru is a great destination for family vacation as it offers a variety of activities for the whole family including swimming, fishing, snorkelling, canoeing, horse riding, jungle trekking, go-carting, golfing and windsurfing. Regarded as Johor's 'gold mine', Desaru is equipped with a wide range of facilities and several up-market resorts, each with its own individual character.  An 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. makes Desaru a well-known destination among golfers.

Apart from first-class hotels and resorts, other accommodations available in Desaru include chalets, dormitories and camping facilities for those looking for a back-to-nature experience. Facilities at the beachfront include picnic grounds, restaurants, food outlets and souvenir shops.

Perhaps after a sumptuous seafood dinner, one can choose to admire nature's gift - the fireflies that gather in the thousands along the Johor River to display twinkling lights of love.

For the more curious ones, head for Kota Tinggi (57KM away) to shop for textiles and Malay garments at Bazar Kota. One can also visit the tombs of the past Sultans and dignitaries who shaped the history of Johor in Kampung Makam and Kampung Kelantan.

To get to Desaru, head for Kota Tinggi, while if from Johor Bahru, use the Johor Bahru-Kota Tinggi trunk road (45KM).

"Beautiful...cool surrounding...not really polluted as other beaches..and you can get the accomodation at the minimum price"   by Mifs


"Pantai yang bersih dan persikitaran yang mempersonakan. Menjadi tumpuan penduduk tempatan mahupun di luar negara."   by Fitri Alia


"there are not much information provided"  


"The beach is long and the sand is white and very soft. It's very peaceful just to walk along the beach. Rent a chalet or dormitory and sleep to the sound of the waves splashing. Very relaxing..."   by jazila


"ombak kat sini agak kuat..tapi pantainya cantik..angin pun boleh tahan kuatnya..dan aku suka makan mee goreng sedap yg dijual di salah sebuah gerai...teka gerai mana??"   by Iwan


"nice beach among the scenery nearby... but not superb."   by senny


"lovely beach!i know that stall yang jual mee goreng yang sangat sedap.."   by nurul


"good but not for all keep it up!!"   by era


"pantainya sangat cantik&ianya terletak berhampiran dengan pelbagai kemudahan& berhampiran dengan pusat pengajian seperti SMSKT dan sebagainya......"   by firdaus f1(SMSKT)


" Ya, benar kata en.ahmad, memang bayaran masuk ke pantai awam ini tidak sepatutnya dikenakan kepada pengunjung. kadar sewa bilik hotel ataupun chalet juga terlalu mahal tak masuk akal- Desaru Holiday Chalet 1 mlm hari biasa RM 300.00,hari minggu/cuti umum naik jadi RM 400.00 ."   by rakyat marhaen


"Pantainya cantik tapi tidak secantik pantai cherating,Pahang dan pantai-pantai di Negeri Terengganu( Maaf! orang Johor jangan marah ). Apa yang menyedihkan juga mengecewakan saya yg menjejakkan kaki buat pertama kali ke sini ialah bayaran parking yg dikenakan keatas pengunjungnya sebanyak RM 3.00. Saya tidak faham mengapa kawasan pantai awam dikenakan bayaran.Saya fikir perkara ini tidak sepatutnya berlaku. saya telah melancong ke hampir semua pantai-pantai di semenanjung malaysia tetapi tidak pernah ada mana-mana tempat(pantai) mengenakan bayaran ke atas pengunjung,hanya di Negeri Johor sahaja yang mengenakan bayaran iaitu di Desaru dan Pantai Air Papan,Mersing. Diharap pihak berwajib dapat memberi perhatian serta tindakan yang sepatutnya untuk tidak mendatangkan bebanan kepada pengunjung di sini. "   by ahmad


"beach is nice but not the best around"   by wag


"The beach is so beautiful."   by Koh Siong Song


"bila jejak aje kaki kat pantai desaru, hati rasa cuak gak coz pantai nya walaupun cantik tapi rasa cam nak makan orang aje..."   by pyan screw


"Crystal clear water make me happy to come here again GOOD!!!"   by WAWAN


"have a beutiful place 2 stay&the people at desaru beach is very kind person"   by man


"Pantainya yang bersih menyebabkan Desaru menjadi tempat tumpuan utama para pelancong."   by Eliza Qistina


"Good beach..."  


"Getting there by car is quite far due to the fact that you have to travel to Kota Tinggi first before travelling down south to Desaru. Hopefully the future direct highway from JB will solve this. The resorts in Desaru are rather run down. Only one is the exception and it is very expensive. The place serves as a launch point to explore Batu Layar Beach and Teluk Punggai Beach if you drive."  


"Very nice scenery. A good place for you to bring your family outing."   by Irwana Ameera
