Kuantan Port is situated facing the South China Sea on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. The port has three main types of berths with a total length 4013 meters. The longest berth is the liquid cargo berth, which is 1740 meters, follows by multi-purpose berth of 1673 meters and container berth of 600 meters. Currently, Kuantan Port is undergoing an upgrading process with the construction of a new deep water terminal that adds a new container terminal to the port. The project consists of construction of a new container terminal, construction of a breakwater, dredging of the new port basin and navigation channels and establishment of new marine aids to navigation. The purpose of this paper is to review the design of the propose new channel and to propose the type and configuration of new marine aids to navigation according to the PIANC and IALA guidelines. The proposal to establish the marine aids to navigation, which is in the form of simulation was developed by using the Multigen software, which is an area development software for the Full Mission Ship Simulator. The simulation is the practical and a near realistic form to validate the proposal.
