Kuala Rompin is a quaint little town in the state of Pahang on the South-East Coast of the Malaysian peninsula, facing the South China Sea.

Rompin has been steadily building a name for itself in the sportfishing of sailfish. It is increasingly being recognised as the Sailfish Capital of Asia, and is gaining reputation as one of the best places on the planet for sailfish.

From Singapore, travellers must travel  just over 200 km north by the coastal road via the city of Johor Bahru and the town of Mersing. From the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Rompin is some 300 km east.
