Tanjung Datu National Park comprises a narrow strip of forested hills and stunning beaches with clear emerald green waters. Located at the southwestern tip of Sarawak, Tanjung Datu is one of Sarawak’s smallest national parks but it is perhaps the most beautiful. A key attraction is its seclusion. The park’s remoteness means that the beaches are pristine and the rainforest intact.
The park is home to a variety of wildlife include Bornean gibbons, pig-tailed and long-tailed macaque monkeys, silver-leaf monkeys, civet cats, bearded pigs, monitor lizards, mouse deer, sambar deer, diverse birdlife and more. Green turtles nest on the park’s beaches from April to September. The rare Rafflesia flower also blooms at Tanjung Datu. The park has four walking trails that allow visitors to experience the rainforest and the stunning coastline.
Tanjung Datu’s beaches are the best in Sarawak with the rainforest running to the shoreline. The clear waters support a range of marine life and patches of coral grow close to the shore. Tanjung Datu is accessed by boat from the small coastal town of Sematan. It is only possible to visit the park during the dry season months from April to September. The park is not accessible during the monsoon months owing to high seas.
