Turtle Landing Place


A place that should be on every visitor's itinerary is Rantau Abang. 

60 km south of Kuala Terengganu. There, visitors lay in wait quietly from midnight to dawn to watch giant leather back turtles laying eggs. The turtles lumbering slowly on the white sandy beaches to lay eggs are a memorable sight. These giant turtles, up to 2.5 m in length and sometimes weighing more than 375 kg are indeed a phenomenal sight to behold. Rantau Abang is one of only six places in the world visited by these turtles, from the months of May to September.
