Pantai Kelanang lebih di kenali sebagai pantai yang baru di Banting Selangor. Ini kerana Pantai Kelanang baru dibuka beberapa tahun lalu kepada umum di atas permintaan masyarakat dalam Daerah Kuala Langat sendiri. Kawasan berpantai untuk rekreasi di Banting sebenarnya bermula di sini. Bermula berhampiran Bukit Jugra, Pantai Kelanang memanjang dan bersambung dengan Pantai Morib dan bertembung Pantai Kg. Batu Laut sebelum ke pantai-pantai lain di Daerah Sepang. Oleh kerana kawasan berpantai yang panjang, kawasan ini menjadi salah satu laluan Le Tour de Langkawi (LtdL).

 

Pantai Kelanang sangat landai dan sebahagian besarnya masih ditumbuhi pokok bakau dan membentuk kawasan hutan paya bakau. Pantai ini tidak sesuai untuk tujuan mandi manda, tetapi lebih sesuai untuk aktiviti perikanan pesisir pantai. Pantai Kelanang yang merupakan sebahagian daripada laut Selat Melaka tidak memiliki air yang jernih, sebaliknya berselut kerana kesibukan laluan laut di Selat Melaka. Walau bagaimanapun, pantai ini menyajikan pemandangan yang menarik bagi tujuan fotografi pada waktu matahari terbenam. Ada blogger juga yang buat business wedding dream photography dengan berlatarkan Pantai Kelanang ni. Dahan dan kayu bakau mati menjadi objek penting...Lihat di sini.

Rustic Charms of Pantai Kelanang

Writer: Lin Zhen Yuan (SelangorTimes)

It is impossible to know every nook and corner in Selangor by the time you retire. Therein lies the charm, of discovery. You are constantly wandering and wondering what lies around the corner after you have made a detour off the road much travelled. About two kilometres in the opposite direction from Morib beach lies another beach. I wouldn’t have located the place if I didn’t have an insatiable curiosity about unheard-of-places.

Kelanang beach or Pantai Kelanang has been around only for about eight to nine years, so said an old man by the sea who I bumped into quite accidentally. Since the leathery-skinned, sun-baked complexion stranger was in a less-than-talkative mood, I declined to enquire further about the exceedingly quiet beach. It was 3.30pm after all.

From a short distance away, rows of eateries indicate that they would probably enjoy some attention in the evening. Word has it that local residents and regular “makan kakis” flock to this beach for a tete-a-tete and an enjoyable meal with close friends. The Malay man whom I spoke to earlier had revealed that he was the caretaker of the place. The panoramic view of three-kilometre landscape reveals that it is a beach as well as a marshland.

The local authorities apparently have taken pains to spruce up the out-of-sight beach. Trees and shrubs are evenly spaced out and well trimmed. It was a bit of a challenge locating this beach. An unsuspecting traveller would have to traverse a few kilometres of tranquil narrow roads to reach his final destination.

Meanwhile, there are austere-looking prefab buildings along the route. Members of the Chinese community would recognise these structures as “swiftlet hotels”. The biggest clue to the identity of these three-and-a-half storey cement structures are the bird sounds that emanate from within the premises. Since Kelanang rests gently between a Malay reservation site and Morib beach, birds that produce that much coveted saliva or “yan wo” are the main targets of savvy businessmen.

Some local residents have claimed that Pantai Kelanang is part of Pantai Morib. There may be an element of truth in that but the beach has clearly got its own personality. The sea view is not only calming to jaded eyes of KL city folks but also has a therapeutic effect on one’s entire body as the sounds of waves and the rustling of palm fronds caress the ears and embrace the heart.

The National Hydraulic Institute of Malaysia has been assigned to look after the drainage, cleanliness and safety of the area. Plans have been made to add attractions like fishing, boating and trekking trails for visitors. If you are in the dark about the exact location of Kelanang beach, here’s a clue. It is about 15km from Kampung Sungai Kelambu. If you are still clueless, it is about time you get a GPS unit. After what seemed like a “lost in time” respite at Pantai Kelanang, I stumbled unto Kampung Kelanang on my way out to the main road. The kampung has a mixed population but its flavours belong to a bygone era. Goreng pisang and putu piring were made and sold by some hardworking kampung makciks.

A nearby shop selling papayas, bananas and coconuts was manned by a Chinese man. He was sorting out the combs of bananas. I bought one comb for RM1.20 and was promptly told that it would only ripen after a week. He was wrong. The bananas turned yellow only after 14 days. That’s kampung pisang, folks. The bananas are practically minuscule compared with their larger cousins at the city supermarket and have a different taste. The dusty, crusty and slightly toasty interior of the wooden double-storey shop has objects and relics that indicate a third-generation ownership of the premises.

Earlier, the Chinese shopowner said his family has been staying in Kampung Kelanang for a better part of 80 years. Pantai Kelanang and Kampung Kelanang are places that grow old gracefully over the decades. There are not many young people here because many of them have moved to the city to seek their fortunes. Their parents still live here because they have grown accustomed to the place. In time, the village and the beach will grow a bit bigger and perhaps be a bit livelier but I reckon the older generation likes it just the way it is.
