Welcome to Lagoon Park - Karambunai Sabah

If you have a long weekend to spend, or you are staying nearby Kota Kinabalu and Tuaran, and you have not planed anything for the weekend, why not pay this lagoon park a visit. You'll be in for a day full of fun activities.

The park is located at Mengkabong river front, on the edge of Karambunai Peninsula and is just 5 minutes away from Karambunai Nexus Resort & Spa. It is owned and managed by the resort. It takes about 30 minutes driving from the city depending on traffic condition.

For Nexus Resort guests, entrance is free. For non-guest, fees of RM10 (adult) and RM5 (children) are applicable. Pretty affordable if you ask me.

You can choose to sit and relax or indulge in all sort of water sports for a fee.

There's a multi-purpose open type hall for company functions - family day, seminar, etc.

Let's play water polo. Anyone?

Forget about all the activities. Just sit back, relax, enjoy your favourite drink and watch sunset here.

Choose one of these and feel the thrill.


Alternatively, you can go to Nexus Resort as a non-guest (psttt...don't tell anyone ok..) and walk along the sandy beach. I have seen few people who just drive up to the resort and join the crowd at the extremely long beach.

Nexus Resort beach: People do surf here although the waves are not the ones you'd see in Hawaii or Gold Coast.

The grass is not the most pleasant sight currently due to the dry spell.

More pictures here.

Happy Easter and have a blessed weekend.

Enjoying sunset at Tanjung Aru First Beach, Kota Kinabalu

Tanjung Aru 1st beach is always swarmed by revelers on weekends. If you enjoy the company of the crowd then come on Saturdays or Sundays. Otherwise go on weekdays and you will have the beach all to yourself. No I was kidding! The 1st beach is crowded almost everyday from 5.00pm onwards.

The atmosphere is great and everyone minds their own business in a nice way.

The following was shot recently during a weekend.

Welcome to Tanjung Aru beach, Kota Kinabalu's pride

 While waiting for the sun to set, why not give yourself some workout and try the Zumba

 or just sit back and watch them

 Football by the beach

 During good weather, you'll be able to see the 'fireball' disappear into the horizon

 Get some interesting perspective and go really low, yah!

 Long after the sun set, you can still enjoy the blue hour

Come visit Tanjung Aru when you drop by Kota Kinabalu. It's just 10 to 15 minutes drive from the city centre.
