Boat Cafe Kuala Selangor

Kuala Selangor Boat Cafe

A brand new tourist attraction called Boat Cafe Kuala Selangor opened up during the Covid19 pandemic in 2021. This is one of the new Instagrammable places many are now headed to.

Kuala Selangor is an old fishing town that has gained popularity recently due to the famous Sky Mirror, a seabed that appears above water during low tide once a month during the full moon.

The place is also well known for the Kuala Selangor Lighthouse, Bukit Malawati Hill and charming fishing villages around the Pasir Penambang area.

The entrance to the boat cafe is shared with the Bagan Seafood Restaurant.

Since this unique boat cafe opened, many people have been interested in who, what, why, where, and when. And I will do my best to share whatever information I have gathered since visiting here in late October 2021.

This unique concept cafe is also owned by the famous No16 Bus Cafe in Sekinchan; however, the boat cafe caters to both day and night visitors.

Because of the popularity of social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook and TikTok, this place attracts many people on weekends.

Therefore, if you do not like crowds, plan to visit here on a weekday, namely Monday, when there are fewer people.

Parking is available outside the restaurant area, but please double check and ensure you do not park in people's spots.

What is the Kuala Selangor Boat Cafe?

Kuala Selangor Places to Visit
This is one of the must-visit places in Kuala Selangor.

It is a large wooden boat refurbished into a multi-level cafe concept and does not sail. It is also parked permanently at the location, so do not expect cruises or trips.

You enter via the starboard side into the boat's main deck, where the staff will greet you and ask if you prefer to sit indoors or outdoors.

The main deck area has tables and a glass or glass flooring section showing the engine room under the floorboard.

The area is air-conditioned and suitable for those who want to cool down or dislike outdoor heat. If you go outside, a small stair leads you to the upper deck, where the outdoor seating area is located.

This is a popular area due to the open-aired feeling and almost 360-degree view of the surrounding area. There are high tables and also seating tables for sunset watching.

A wooden ladder leads up the main mast to a crow's nest area on top of the boat, where you can view the entire area in full 360 degrees.

This area is only accessible for two persons at one time for safety reasons, and up there, you get to take some beautiful photos.

What is Served at the Boat Cafe Kuala Selangor?

Food and Drinks Menu Boat Cafe
The basic menu of the boat cafe.

For food and beverage, there are limited choices but reasonable enough for lifestyle cafe hunters. Don't expect full meals, as this is not a restaurant but a cafe concept.

Visitors can choose simple snacks like fries, chicken popcorn, cakes, Korean fried chicken and even a mini hotpot. Drinks include mineral water, coffee, hot beverages, soft drinks, soju and beer buckets.

The Boat Cafe Kuala Selangor is not Halal for Muslims, but no pork is served here. They serve alcohol, but visitors can always order canned drinks or mineral water.

When I visited around 4.00 PM, I did not order food, just drinks and walked around to take photos and video.

Below are random photos of the boat taken with my Galaxy Z Flip3 and Galaxy S10 Plus smartphones when I visited this place at the end of October 2021;

If you plan to visit this part of Selangor for a day trip or other locations like Tanjung Karang or Sekinchan, this Boat Cafe Kuala Selangor is highly recommended to see in the evening.

Be prepared to take some lovely photos, and if things work out well, I will start organising a Kuala Selangor Photo Walk for anyone interested.
