Very beautiful beach but lacks the basic services that everyone would expect. I would only go there if I have my one chair and food. Prices of food and drinks are high..I did not find any reason for selling coconut for RM 5 while the...More

A place to remember the love and pain. A place to dream and whilst away drinking a few beers. The tourist... well... I see them as the penguins and the seagulls.

Visited here on my first evening in Kota Kinabalu, was amazed by the sunset and tropical weather. Lots of people on the side of the beach near the carpark, but much less if you walk further in. Sunset there was definitely worth watching and was...More

It is no doubt that the sunset view here is one of top lists across the world. Despite the crowd, here is a must-go attraction of visiting KK.

There were many stalls selling food and drinks but no proper seating to enjoy your food. Crowded with tourists but we managed to get some photos. Parking is quite limited but the place is quite clean.

I can't really comment on the sunset as I was only able to go in the morning on my last day in KK. Beach was fairly clean and there was no one there which was quite nice. Nice stroll but not much else happening here.

First of all, don't get me wrong, the view of the sunset is breathtaking but the beach is to crowded by tourist to the point you can't enjoy the view.

View is incredible, however the beach does get a lot of litter (common around KK). I would recommend visiting the food market after watching the sunset here.

Basically it is a long and wide sand beach suitable for most of the beach activities including swimming, sand castle etc. There isn't much amenities in the park next to the beach but it is still a nice linear park for... More
