Pulau Santap

River

Pulau Santap is a picnic area at the confluence of Sungai Benus and Cheringging rivers at Janda Baik. It's a long stretch of river and natural rainforest surroundings, making it popular with families for day trips or overnight camping. 'Pulau' means island, while 'Santap' is a royal word for eating - In ancient times, a small island rose above the confluence of rivers, where it was used as a leisure spot for meals by Pahang's sultans. Over time, the island was eaten away by erosion and no longer exists today. Several resorts and chalets have opened up accommodation along this spot, but the main area has a small park with broad section of shallow river to enjoy.
