Kelanang Beach is just five minutes drive from the famed Morib Beach (Pantai Morib). I have no idea why one stretch of beach is more popular than the other where both are extensions of each other.

The fact that this is the Strait of Malacca means that the water here is murky and the sand is rougher compared to East Coast beaches.

When I was there recently, it was heartening to see a a few guys trying to clean up the beach. One guy even swam out into the sea and fished out a large banner. Thank God for conscientious people like him!
