The beach is nice but nothing special. The evening food market is cheap and cheerful but was not particularly lively the evening we were there and the food was pretty average. Walkable from Shangri-La Tanjung Aru.

Nice to walk along and maybe watch a sunset but that’s about it. There’s a small local market next to it serving food and clothing. Not a beach to sit on or swim at.

Go there if only for the magnificent sunset. The beach itself is not clean. Rubbish can be seen scattered. Except for the main beach, the rest of the area is not well maintained. The authorities should do something about this given that this is a tourist attraction.

No surf, water isn't clear, no coral, what is the attraction of this mediocre beach? It doesn't compare to anything found generally o tropical islands. Not worth the effort.

You don’t need to go to Shangrila sunset bar to see the magnificent KK’a sunset, just take a stroll along Tanjong Aru beach.

We went during low tide where the sea water is a good 30-40m down the beach. It leaves us with a lot of strolling space and to see the tiny crab scuttle back into their holes as we approach.

We started near the food stalls north of Prince Phillips park and walked north towards Shangrila and took a Grab from DBKK carpark.

Lovely evening stroll in the sunset.

There were a lot of trash, i even saw a mattress! a lot of plastic bottles and plastic bags. Besides education, i think enforcement is needed to control this problem

Public beach, good for morning and evening walk. In the evenings its lovely to see the locals all out for a walk or having picnics with their families and friends. Good birdwatching opportunities too - especially in the morning. Spotted a number of new birds for an amateur birder like me. Sunset supposed to be very beautiful but it was cloudy on all 3 days I was there.

Very memorable & beatiful sunset views. Several times visits during the sunset as you may capture such lovely & beautiful colours in the sky during the sunset.
Should go there if you reach Kota Kinabalu.

The sunset view was super super marvelous. It was my first experience, and the beach was clean. And enough space to have a pretty angle to enjoy the sunset.
