Danga Bay can be accessed from Skudai Highway (Federal route 1) via the Danga Bay interchange which becomes Jalan Skudai Route , which is located near Istana Bukit Serene. Those coming from Singapore and Johor Bahru city centre can access Danga Bay via Jalan Skudai.
Tanjung Balau is a white sandy beach with blue horizon and clear turquoise sea. Nearby this beautiful stretch of beach is a quaint, planned fishing Malay fishing village and a unique Fishermen Museum. A walk around the village and a visit to the museum should enlighten visitors with more accurate understanding of how fishermen make their living.
The beach itself is quite good, thought not up there with Malaysia's best and the water is not of the tropically clear variety you might expect. The beach is kept clean, even on weekends when hordes of day-trippers visit. This long stretch of sandy beach is home to a wide range of resorts, shopping opportunities and water sports.
From Mersing, take the coastal road north towards Kuantan. Air Papan is only about 10 minute's drive from Mersing.
