If you find yourself in Bintulu and want a taste of a Borneo rainforest then a walk through the Similajau National park is a must. We carried our toddler in a carrier and she loved it. Just take a lot of mosquito repellent and water.

A good place to have a short break in the weekend. This place is mainly for jungle trekking. Maybe for bbq with friends and family. The beach is sandy but the water is not very clear. When doing jungle trekking can bring an extra pair of clothes. Maybe you want to have a swim halfway during the jungle trekking.

A few check point to stroll. If want to stroll all of the check points, need to come early in the morning. The nearest check point will take an hour return.

I really enjoyed my time here. We spent the morning and walked as far as the first look out. We didn't have much time or we would have walked to the other beaches. Some of the views are fantastic. The water is supposed to be cleaner than Tanjung Batu, and the staff said we could swim. There are signs warning... More

We decided to go for a 6km trek at noon, got lost on our way back because we decided to walk by the beach and not following the trek. The journey back was spectacular however not recommended for those who is not fit to climb and afraid of deep sea. But if you are up for a little adventure, try... More

This place not very well maintain. That is the first impression you will face once reach here. RM10 will be charge if you want to go for jungle trekking. There are few routes and the shortest is View Point which took less than 30 minutes one-way to reach good seaside view point. This suitable for young children.. There is a... More

Great view but the facilities is so-so.. Some of the trekking trail is under construction and you cant go further than the simplest route..maybe the administratiin should provide boat ride service to encourage people to come here

It's worth paying the taxi fare (RM 60 one way) to spend a night in this peaceful park. There is a range of accommodation available including dormitory beds for RM 15 which can be booked individually. Be aware that if you visit during the week, the canteen may only be open from 0930 until 1900 so bring some extra food... More
