Selangor Morib Beach

Morib Beach

If the popular west coast beach resorts are a bit too crowded for you, you might find Morib, located at the southern end of the Selangor state, more appealing.

Approximately 1 1/2 hour's drive from Kuala Lumpur, it is the perfect place for some quiet, peaceful relaxation.
Surrounded by whispering casuarinas and swaying palms, you can comb the beaches of Morib during low tide, searching for seashells or watch small crabs scuttle away and disappear into the sand. You can even spread out a mat and settle down to a picnic lunch beside a shady casuarina grove.

Selangor Morib Beach

For history lovers Morib is also home to a wealth of historical sites. There are the ruins of old government buildings and the royal graves at Jugra, including an abandoned palace from the 1800's. Allied Forces also landed on this stretch of beach in September 1945, marking the end of the Japanese Army's occupation of Malaya.
Those who wish to spend the night can seek accommodation at nearby Hotel Sri Morib.

Selangor Morib Beach

Getting There
Morib is accessible from Kuala Lumpur by the Federal Highway or the North Klang Valley Expressway via Klang. From Klang, proceed to Banting before reaching Morib.

To reach Morib by bus, you should board a Kuala Lumpur-Banting bus from the Klang Bus Station in Kuala Lumpur. From Banting, take another bus or taxi plying the Morib route.
