Pandan Gold Coast Beach, Lundu
Nestled in a secluded location in Kampung Pandan, Lundu, a two-hour drive to this beach is well worth the trip. Check into the affordable accommodation at Pandan Gold Coast villa. And head out to the beach just in front of it for a great time with friends or family. You can even have a barbecue by the beach. But be sure to clean up afterwards. As the sun makes it descent, its rays turn the sand and the sea golden, hence ‘gold coast’.

Tusan Beach, Miri
This gem of a beach situated in Miri. It’s known for its unique rock formation that stands out, especially when the beach is on low tide. Besides a stunning beachfront, the beach was once also famous for its cliff edge. Which resembled a horse taking a drink of water. Unfortunately, the feature no longer exists after the cliff edge collapsed in February 2020. Today, Tusan Beach remains one of Miri’s top attractions that is also well known for a natural phenomenon known as “Blue Tears”. Whereby the edge of the water glows bright blue at night as a result of a large concentration of bioluminescent phytoplankton.
