Tanjung Batu

Tanjung Batu means Rocky Isthmus and as the name suggest, it is where the sandy beach and rocky beach can be seen side by side.

This is one of the more developed beach at Bintulu with all the necessary amenities and facilities are readily available. The food and drink stalls here are enjoying a brisk business.

Coconuts trees are everywhere here. Some of the stalls here also selling coconut and I believe those fruit are sourced here.

The beach is facing the South China Sea. For someone like me who don't have a beach back at my hometown, I really enjoying myself here.

The rocky formation can be observed next to the sandy beach. I was wondering how these rocks can end up here.

Marine shell life can be seen around the rocky formation

It's a nice place to relax and enjoy the sea breeze from here. I notice a lot of people fishing here

The Malaysian LNG plants can also be seen from here. This is the world's largest liquefied natural gas production facility on a single site and also the very first Shell Middle Distillate Synthesis plant.

This place is definitely an ideal place for family picnic and leisure.

Hi.

Nice info. I linked your blog in my other blog http://reptoz.blogspot.com.

I have been here, if i'm not mistaken and i tried the seafood at nearby restaurant. But i can't remember the name. I think it is near a roundabout (I know...many roundabouts there right?)

I must admit, Bintulu sells the cheapest seafood.

Get some shells as souveniers. Get macro shots of the shells while you are at it.
