Walked here from Serendipity, took around half an hour. Cheap eats, super relaxed vibe. Roby and his multitude of children will make you feel at home. Cheap beer.

We visited here 3 or 4 times during our trip to the Tip of Borneo and loved it. The staff were really friendly. Get the ginger chicken and a Milo ice!

It is the most beautiful beach i've been to. It's not crowded and Roby's family is so friendly. Falling asleep to the sound of waves and waking up to the sun. Breathtaking sunset! Also the foods are cheap and delicious.
