This place was quite big. The huge hornbill statue facing the sea was eye-catching from a distance. We visited just for the purpose of having some food for lunch there as we were staying at the hotel nearby. There were quite a number of foodstalls, mostly selling Malay food. We loved the 'ayam penyet'. The roti canai/murtabak stall was having... More

This is the latest beach place in Kuching to hang out. Good place for sunset hunters, and just enjoy the beach with your friends and family. Just opposite the Sarawak Cultural Village. Accessible mainly by taxis and tour buses.

We stopped here as it is opposite the Sarawak Cultural Village. There is a small food kiosk that serves a variety of dishes at reasonable prices that are quite tasty. The hornbill statue overlooking the beach is worth a photo but that about all it has going for it.

If your'e trying to figure out how to kill a little bit of time in Kuching... I'd keep looking. This is just a slightly weird little shopping centre overlooking a fairly terrible beach. It WAS monsoon when we went there, but the water was chocolate brown and we couldn't through 5 cm of water (we DID swim, but felt dirty)!... More

If the space was utilised properly with all the right activities, the place has potential to be a crowd-puller on its own. When I went over from Permai for New Years Eve (since Permai didnt seem to host any NY Eve activities) to the one and only bar (Escobar?) there, seems to be a lot of missed opportunities. The circular... More

Good place to find cheap food. Don't go to ESCOBAR if packed with people as the management don't have a good system

Love the evening ambient and for sunset view, yet weekend can be loaded with big crowds! You may always plan your trip to Sarawak Cultural Village before heading here as both are located within the same vicinity.
