Kuching Travel - Pandan Beach

On my previous trip, I missed Pandan Beach which is one of the 2 popular beaches at Lundu - a small town about 1 1/2 hour drive from Kuching. Pandan Beach is just 2 km further down from Siar Beach - about 10 km from Lundu Town. To me it is the most beautiful stretch of beach in Sarawak. The sea is blue, the sand fine and white, and what makes Pandan Beach really special are the rocky outcrops which dot the beach at several places. From these spots - you could almost imagine you are not in Sarawak anymore. The ambiance feels more like some dream island location far far away.

The beautiful Pandan Beach.

The rocky bits called Pandan Batu. The views here are spectacular.

Some lucky local residents have their homes built right on the rocks.

Due to its secluded location, Pandan Beach is still relatively unspoilt. I hope it stays that way.
