Pandan Beach at Lundu

Fishing boats at Pandan Beach, Lundu.

 On a recent trip to Lundu, about one and a half hours journey west of Kuching, I met one of the most beautiful beaches in Sarawak.  The Pandan beach has one of the most amazing coastal beach scenery.  The fissured rocks that form part of the beach features are awesome.  The beaches are long and wide and very gradually sloping into the South China Sea, making it very safe for swimming.  There is a small Malay fishing community that is resident to the place.  The coastline is very tropical with swaying tall coconut palms, breezy air, soft and fine sand and no pollution from nearby rivers or streams.  The calls of the Collared Kingfisher intermittently broke the peaceful beach atmosphere. The beach is an ideal place for a picnic spot because it is freely accessible to the public or visitors.
