Pantai Balok is a beach resort destination 8km north the city, a coastal strip measuring 5km that stretches from Swiss Garden Hotel at east to Balok Rivermouth at west. A popular spot for kite-flying and windsurfing, the beach is vast and spacious, providing for an uncluttered environment even when many visitors are around.

A large car park is available at the public entry point (accessible along the main road near De Rhu Beach Resort) with recreational facilities that include playgrounds, gazebos and bathrooms. As the strip is long and wide, there are many hotels that have opened shop along this picturesque beachfront lined with generous clumps of Casuarina trees.
