Malaysia: Borneo, Sabah – Karambunai Beach Near Luxurious Resort, and the Sunset
Nexus Karambunai is a beautiful beach resort 45 minutes of ride from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah State. Adjacent to the resort, there is a 18-hole golf course. It is beautiful and landscaped. Also, you can ride on a horse back on a beach, make biking trips, walks through Karambunai rain forest and beach sports.
A beach near this luxurious resort is Karambunai. It is home to mani species from herons, monitors, lizards to jelly fish. The sea is nice and clear. Near the resort there are water lilly ponds covering water surface that you hardly see any water.
Sabahans love Tanjung Aru beach since it is an ideal vacation destination. The skies is amazing, sand is white, the sea is brightly blue. There are countless stands and restaurants you may choose from. Also, you can play volleybal or try some water sports, build sand castles, dive etc.
From downtown Kota Kinabalu you may get to the beach by bus. The fare is 1,50 RM (less then 10 CZK). Should you choose a cab instead, you will pay about 15 RM. There are many resorts situated around the beach such as Shangri-La Rasa Ria Resort. Sunsets in Borneo are amazing as sun seems much larger than anywhere in the world here. When the sun sets it lits the skies with immesurable number of colors. Before the sundown, dozens of people stand on the beach to take pictures.
The beach is free to enter. However, you have to be careful of jellyfish. You don't want to leave Borneo with a memory of close encounters with them. You may make your waiting for the sunset more pleasant by buying some groceries. Vendors usually close late into the night. Try coconut or a juise from sugar cane, or chicken or beef satay, or corn. Maybe you will like a dinner from sea fruits at some beach restaurant.
