There are several routes you can take to reach Kelong Acheh from Kuala Lumpur via the North South Highway exit at Senawang Toll Plaza through Kuala Pilah/Bahau and Bandar Muazzam Shah. This route is about a six hour drive.
Alternatively, you can continue on the North South Highway and exit at the Air Hitam Toll Plaza and take route 50 to Mersing and turn right at Tanjung Resang junction to Penyabong. This route will also take approximately 6 hours but be ready to fork out a tidy sum for the toll charges.
The best and fastest (4 hours) way to Kelong Acheh from Kuala Lumpur is via the East Coast Highway and exit at the Gambang Toll Plaza through Pekan town and via the scenic coastal route 3 through Nenasi, Merchong, Rompin and Endau. This route gives you a preview of the beautiful blue seas of the South China Sea once you leave Pekan town.
For visitors from the South, just take the Kota Tinggi route through Mersing and Tg Resang to Penyabong. This will only take approximately 3 hours.
Once you reach the jetty which is at the road’s dead end you will find ample parking available right in front of the jetty or at Zul's Guest house (Mama Bedah's Restaurant) nearby. Parking charges are the same either way at RM5 per night. Security has never been an issue, rest assured your vehicles are well protected here.
Once you reach the jetty, look for the Kelong Acheh boat. The boat ride will only take a mere 7 minutes.. if you are lucky, dolphins are often sighted swimming along with the boat.
