Lumut

Lumut Beach

To reach these enchanting resorts, visitors must travel to the small coastal town of Lumut approximately 84 km south of Ipoh. Once a relatively unknown fishing village, it has since acquired the distinction of being the home base of the Royal Malaysian Navy, as well as the departure point to the beautiful islands in the Straits of Malacca.


Of interest here is the Naval Museum which houses a collection of ancient weapons and artifacts. Known as well for its novelty gifts crafted from shells and coral, there are shops for souvenir hunters opposite the jetty. Close by is the town's landscaped park and clock tower, from which one can catch a scenic view of the sea.

Lumut Beach

Canoeing

About 6 1/2 km south of Lumut is the palm fringed beach of Teluk Batik, a favourite haunt for campers, picnickers and sun seekers. Calm and warm, the coastal waters along this stretch are also ideal for swimming and canoeing.
The Pesta Laut Lumut (Lumut Sea Festival), an annual event celebrated with sea-sport competitions, colourful regattas and cultural shows, is held here between the months of August and September.
