The beaches are lined with casuarina trees dotted by rustic fishing villages. Nearby are cascading falls, natural lakes and jungles where one can go jungle trekking.
To make your visit more memorable, visit Tanjung Pengelih to see  the relics of World War Two and the historical relic of the Malay Johor Riau Empire at Johor Lama.
Getting to the largest district of Johor at the south-eastern end of the peninsula, requires an hour's drive from Johor Baru. From the north, the easiest way is to take the Kulai exit of the North-South Expressway followed by a 90-minute drive to the historic town. The coastal road is a lot more scenic.
There are reliable public transportation services from all major towns. There is a direct ferry service between the Tanah Merah ferry terminal in Singapore and Sebana Cove, about an hour from Kota Tinggi.
