Gem Beach Resort is a beachfront resort close to the traditional fishing village of Batu Rakit, 29km from Kuala Terengganu City Center and 18km from Kuala Terengganu Sultan Mahmud Airport, on the North East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
On the distant horizon, over the South China Sea, can be seen the islands of Bidong and Redang and with the excellent visibility, seem much closer then they really are.
To the right of the Gem Beach Resort is a rocky outcrop surrounded by the sea. At is this, that gives the village of Batu Rakit its name. The proximity of this attractive traditional fishing village provides resort guests with the opportunity of seeing the fishermen land their catch each day. Some is processed into salt fish or fish crackers that can be seen being sun dried close by.
