“Fine golden sands”
Review of Pantai Sabak

Pantai Sabak
Reviewed 15 March 2018 via mobile

Loved walking in the golden sands, fringed by coconut palms. A really cool walk in the early morning or late evening as there is the breeze blowing. We also saw fishing boats returning. So relaxing to just sit around on the beach and observed the gentle waves lapping on the shore.

History has it that WW2 in Asia started here when the Japanese landed in Sabak at dawn of 8 Dec 1942. True, they attacked Pearl Harbour a day earlier , but only because of the time frame.
Erosion had taken its toil and what was once a beautiful beach, where people from all over came to view and enjoy the beaches, is now a wreck. Nothing is left saved a few bunkers which was used by the British in an attempt to repulse the advancing Japanese. It is a pity that the local authorities failed to sieze the opportunity to built around it monuments to highlight the occasion. There are a few eateries serving fresh seafood by the beach, but it is meant for the locals.
It is just a10 minute drive from the PC Airport. A 30 minute tour will be sufficient, but only if you were to insist...

Last time i was here in October 1992. I am 10 years old back then. The coastline was far and wide and there were many pillboxes around that was build by the British. The pillboxes were used as defence against the Japanese attack during World War 2 as the attack and landing on Sabak Beach happened earlier than the attack on Pearl Harbor. But nowadays the scenery and the beach had been altered. Corrosion had affected the coastline and the fishing villages that were once scattered near the beach head. But rest assured, may be one day Sabak Beach will emerge again like the Rhu Tujuh Beach in Tumpat Kelantan. There once a time Rhu Tujuh Beach become corroded and a few years back the beach had emerge once again. Try to talk to the locals about the history and what Sabak Beach once used to be, if they knew English, they'll surely answered you.
