    This beach looks so pretty! I love watching kites fly, although I’m not very good at it myself haha

      I’m not either! Which is why the constant breeze is so great! Even I could keep a kite up at Morib lol

    OMG it was so hot the few days we were in KL I wish we had gone to a breezy, delightful beach like this! I don’t typically fly kites (like maybe not ever in my whole life), but I would love to have done this.

    • Teja says:

      Yes, the near-constant breeze is the only thing that made the beach pleasant, heat-wise. When the breeze dips down you can totally feel the heat.

    Morib Beach looks amazing – the blue waters and white washed sand make for a post-card worthy picture! Locals definitely enjoy the beach differently to tourists! Great post and beautiful pictures!

    Guess this just makes you appreciate the beauty of the coastline even more right? ;) I haven’t flown a kite since I was a kid but will definitely have to put this down on my bucket list for when I visit hahaa.

    Good tip on the stripping down and sunbathing point! Is it because of their religion that they’re a little more modest?

    • Teja says:

      Well, there’s that. But the real point is that we Asians (the non-westernised ones anyway) just do not sunbathe! It’s weird to us that people wanna take off their clothes and lie in the sun – on purpose! The sensible thing is to cover up and go in the shade. It’s not really something we associate with family beaches. Culturally traditional Asians (including those who are not Muslim) do not wander undressed in front of family, let alone in public.

    It looks like a beautiful beach. I would love to take a walk during the low tide and it would be fun to fly a kite – I haven’t done that in ages!

    It looks beautiful! One of my university roomates were from Kuala Lumpur – I would truly like to visit it one day.. & go to to this place for sure too.

    Oh didn’t know so close to KL you can find such nice beach.

    • Teja says:

      I mean it’s not the best beach in the country, but yeah – a nice outing if you’re in the neighbourhood of KL!

  9. Jen says:

    I haven’t flown a kite in ages! Where I’m from they have a whole day dedicated to it and everyone brings their kite down and flies it. It looks amazing

    Nice to know where to head to the beach next time I’m in KL

    It’s been quite some time since I’ve been kite flying, although it was on uneven ground and I always had difficulty keeping the kite up. This beautiful level beach would probably make it a lot easier. Will give it a go when I get to Malaysia next year. :)

    This looks like another great day trip from KL. I am from a coastal town in Australia so a visit to the beach is in order for me, here in KL! Thank you.

    Been long I heard about kites. I’d love to travel to this beach if I’m chanced. Your blog posts beings memories vividly. Thanks!

    This beach has me all excited. Of course the beach is nice, but I was looking more for the kites. Being an avid kite flyer with a great passion for kites, this beach is tempting me. I would love to let loose my kite and watch it soar away over the seas.

    • Teja says:

      Yeah, even a novice kite-flier like me could manage to get a kite to stay up! But don’t let the kite loose though…! They’re mostly not biodegradable. The sea life probably won’t like that one bit! haha
