How To Go Padang Pasir Melaka @ Pantai Klebang?? 马六甲沙漠怎么去?

Have you ever wonder where is Padang Pasir Melaka? Or to be exact, it is called "Padang Pasir Klebang"??  This desert in Melaka is actually a reclaimed land by Melaka developers and it has been years the extra pile of sands placed at the edge of the island. In chinese, we call this desert in Malaysia as 马六甲沙漠. The location and scenery is so unique that you might think yourself has traveled to somewhere exotic like the Sahara Desert.

Today I am going to share with you how to go to Padang Pasir Klebang, when and where to go to catch the beautiful scenery in this heaven. Save money on your flight tickets as you can have desert scene as your prewedding/graduation photography background too. If you are interested in having your wedding photos captured here, I can be your photographer =) Let's DIY together!!

First, I should show you what I manage to shoot during my several visit to this beautiful place. It was really hot in there and you need to walk like 15-20 minutes distance just to reach here if you are not driving a four-wheel drive (or else your car might sink into the sand and caught stranded there).

The best time to visit Padang Pasir Melaka (Padang Pasir Klebang) is during sunrise or sunset hour. This is because you will able to get the amazing lighting during golden hour to create the amazing contrast on your background. I will show you some pictures below:

THINGS TO BRING BEFORE YOU GO TO PADANG PASIR KLEBANG AT MELAKA

  • Bring along a huge bottle of water because it will be really hot in there if you want to spend whole evening there.
  • Bring cap, sunglasses, umbrella or apply sunblock in case you don't want to get tanned
  • Wear comfortable sport shoes instead of flip-flop as your shoes might sink into the hungry sand.
  • Bring a tripod if you want to have a family photo or time lapse all by yourself. Well you can hire me if you don't have a tripod haha
  • Most importantly, bring an extra plastic/environmental bag to keep all your rubbish in it so it won't give the land owner more reason to restrict us from going there for an adventure.
Remember, to keep this place beautiful, don't leave any rubbish there. You are what you create.

WHERE'S MELAKA DESERT PADANG PASIR KLEBANG?

Padang Pasir Klebang is actually located in somewhere near Pantai Klebang Besar and Muzium Kapal Selam Melaka. It is actually on the sea and google map haven't update the whole area yet. To go there, you can search for "Pantai Klebang" or "Muzium Kapal Selam" so you can see the huge logo of Dataran 1 Malaysia Melaka


DI MANA LOKASI PADANG PASIR KLEBANG?

Senang nak cari Padang Pasir Klebang. Guna Waze/Google Map cari "Muzium Kapal Selam" untuk pergi area sana. Awak akan sampai di satu hujung jalan.

HOW TO GO TO PADANG PASIR KLEBANG/ MELAKA DESERT ??

Use the Waze/Google Map Navigation application on your smartphone to easily reach there. Search for 'Pantai Klebang' and 'Muzium Kapal Selam' so you can reach the area. Padang Pasir Klebang is actually that triangle shape reclaimed island that connected to the mainland. Once you drive all the way on the tar road towards the sea, the tar road ended halfway and you need to start driving into the sandy area. 

There used to be straight road to Padang Pasir but developers blocked the road for safety reason (since it is a reclaimed land, certain part of the land might not be stable and it is possible to have hidden sinking holes hazard for visitors). Therefore you will need to stop your car halfway and walk towards the desert in Melaka.

I hope my description is good enough to bring you to this wonderland. If you have any question on how to go, let me know kay? Or else, share your selfie/pictures taken at Padang Pasir Klebang at the comment section below (or tag me on instagram @tianchad #PadangPasirKlebang)


taking my camera on an adventure to padang pasir melaka - nikonian

I've been to Padang Pasir Klebang in Melaka for several times and the weather was awful when I first went there last year. It was hazy hence I couldn't see the blue sky and eventually the background blend in with the sky. After that, I went there again during Chinese New Year and was checking on the weather forecast so that I can see sunset. Or else there's no point you go there without a mission and that perfect natural lights.

I will show you some photos taken during my first (hazy weather) visit walking on the desert without proper direction. I was taking the #WalterMitty adventure spirit to explore the forbidden ground. You can compare the photos  taken during my most recent visit to this place. Definitely better lights to lit up the mysterious desert in Melaka.

Before I end this post, you should actually drop by Klebang Original Coconut Shake before/after your trip to Padang Pasir Klebang to chill yourself out. It is getting more pricey since they have more visitors now. But since you are not coming Melaka everyday, no harm try out coconut shake there right?

Hope this post manage to help you search for this desert in Melaka. Do keep it clean or perhaps remove the rubbish that you came over when you are on your way back. That's how more people can come back to this place even if it is just a family hang out location during school holiday and weekend.
