Photographer's Note

Tanjung Aru beach located 5 km from Kota Kinabalu City Center. Tanjung Aru Beach is particularly popular at weekends. It is a place where one can relax with family and friends, as well as enjoy the breezy atmosphere.

Tanjung in english was cape. Taking its name from the casuarinas or aru trees that fringe the fine sands, this is where one might get a ringside seat to the greatest sunset on earth every evening when the crimson sun dips slowly into the horizon, leaving the vast skies a brilliant red..

Foodstalls serving local food and drinks are open till late at night. Enjoy coconut and sugarcane juice, chicken or beef satay and steamed peanuts and corn, or indulge in a full-course dinner at the seafood restaurant located there.
