Enjoy your outdoor adventure

Cosmic Campers is located in the town of Marang in Terengganu, facing the South China Sea that holds ⅓ of the entire world’s marine biodiversity and is home to the longest coastlines in Malaysia.

Due to its location between Dungun and Kuala Terengganu, the campsite enjoys near-zero light pollution. Astronomers, stargazers, and astronomy photographers, we finally have the perfect campsite to set up your toys, observe the night skies for shooting stars & satellites and gaze into the Milky Way till sunrise. We also rent binoculars for the 1st-timers & curious stargazers.

Situated 28km from the Marang jetty & about 150km from the Besut jetty, this campsite is also the perfect pit-stop, while on road trips to Kapas, Tenggol, Redang or the Perhentian Islands.

Included amenities are showers & toilets, BBQ pits, freezer and a kitchenette. We also have a shaded patio area with nearby showers & toilets, to set up your tent if you are weather sensitive. The roughness of the South China Sea creates unpredictable underwater sand dunes on the seabed with strong currents all year thru, making it challenging, even for expert swimmers.

Therefore, this location is a non-touristic spot, meaning you won’t be getting the buzz of crowds, jet skis or banana boats. You will enjoy the silence, make some night bonfires and witness amazing sunrises.

Enjoy 3 locations for you to ‘make house’.

Venus (Beachfront) Campsite Marang Terengganu


Beachfront with the sea breeze, scorching heat in the day, and chilly at night.



A slightly shaded and at the poolside area.

Neptune (Shaded patio area) Campsite Marang Terengganu


Shaded patio area.

Stay safe all campers..wherever you're camping. Be mindful of rivers & water surges. 

For the curious & the brave💪, if you'd like to experience camping in the monsoon, cosmic campers remains open. Beach will be riddled with debris brought by the waves....but you'd be guaranteed a show by the South China Sea, which can sound like a 777 flying low (esp at nights).

Some tips:
1. Preferably 4WD, Vans, RV & motorhomes to avoid flash floods traveling in the east coast.
2. Have more than 1 dry bag 4ur belongings. 
3. Use garbage bags to store anything muddy.
4. Absolutely NO SWIMMING in the ocean. 
5. Best to camp in Neptune (shaded open space). Check website for pictures.

HEADS-UP Campers.. the tides have brought in stinging jelly-like marine life.....

..The Blue Bottles. It's a siphonophore. 

Yeah Google that pls & Read up more..

Portuguese Man O’ War or its scientific name ‘physalia physalis’ has been spotted at Pantai Kelulut and Pantai Pulau Kerengga in Marang. 

Don't try stepping/popping it if you see it on the sands. They play dead... till the tide comes in. And it's their long tentacles that will take you on a jol ride to hell & back. . 

If stung, don't rub it. Wash off any remaining tentacles with saltwater or hot water, to remove any invisible stinging cells. 

Stay away pls & keep safe.

Enjoy walks on the beach any time of the day and night. On a scorching day, cool down with a dip in separate swimming pools for kids and adults and stargaze the nights by the poolside or on the soft sands of the coastline.

Tents, beach mats, basic camping equipment, fly sheets & groundsheets, and binoculars are available for rent. If you have any problems during your stay, please let us know immediately so we can try and sort them out while you are here.
