Welcome graphic

Imagine a relaxed surrounding where you get to stroll down wooden planks, rent a fishing rod, cast your line and enjoy the sounds of sea waves coming in. The bustling part of everyday life in the city is put on hold for just this moment, where life is simple and the day is as long as it takes for the sun to set. A time for family and friends to laugh and enjoy each other's company...ah bliss....Now, where is this hidden little gem of a place?
 

A little about Kukup ..


Kukup is situated south of Pontian, a small town at the southwest corner of Johor, Malaysia. A fishing village with houses built on stilts over the sea, Kukup village is famous for its seafood restaurants, with daily fresh seafares hauled directly from the ocean to your table. It's surrounded by one of the world's largest mangrove swamp island, Kukup Island, along which numerous fish-farms bob up and down on the surface of the Kukup Sea.
 
Hard working chinese fishermen made their living here since a century ago, but nowadays their homes have been converted into holiday chalets for the sole purpose of promoting tourism to this part of Johor. On most weekends, the village is packed with tourist, especially from the neighbouring country, Singapore.
 
Handicraft and delicacies such as keropok, belacan and cencaluk are available at Kukup. There are day trip excursions to Kukup island to visit the mangrove swamp. There is also a golf course, Kukup Golf Resort which provides 2 x 18 holes courses spread over 312 acres.
