Sekayu Waterfall is located about 16km from the town of Kuala Berang and 56km from the town of Kuala Terengganu. This waterfall of Terengganu is a popular haunt for locals, especially during the weekends.
Sekayu waterfall is easily accessible. There are signboards along the Kuala Berang main road that will lead you there. While the waterfall is the main attraction here, the park authorities have also built some man-made attractions to add ‘value’ to the park.
This is quite a pleasant park to visit. Fortunately, it is well maintained and kept. There are ample signs to help visitors identify the park’s attractions.
There is also a mini museum in the park with some rather interesting exhibits. The displays are mostly traditional crafts but not limited to the state of Terengganu.
Well, the park itself is like an ‘all in one’ kind of park. The only difference I may say is that kudos, the park management has done a great job compared to the many others I have seen. The fish pond is flowing with life. The herb garden is well stocked with various plants and well taken care. Flowers were blooming and nature seems…well, natural. There’s also a wooden hanging bridge which is probably rather old but still serviceable.
But of course, the main attraction here would be the main waterfall and the river itself. Fast flowing river with small pools that makes this place a great haunt for families. Best part is, the river banks are not littered with rubbish (an unusual sight for me really!)! Even the man-made huts are in reasonable condition. Now, as far as river parks goes, the Hutan Lipur Sekayu gets all thumbs up from me. A place I wouldn’t mind bringing my own family on weekends.
