Pantai Kundur

Pantai Kundur, a small fishing village, is approximately seventeen kilometers from Malacca. This beach is a favorite spot for swimming and picnicking, but it is perhaps best known for its graceful form of night-fishing. Fishermen suspend their nets from poles near their kelongs (houses built on stilts over the water) and periodically lower them to net a passing shoal.
