This is the place where locals love to hangout during weekends by bringing their family along mostly to enjoy the view of the sunset or their 'family time'. There are food court varies from western to local food with a reasonable price. This place also has a convenient store that is 7E and other local stores, B&B, restaurants, bar.

This place is suitable for families to hangout because it provided a lot of activities such as archery, pony riding, scooter ride, hover board, robot ride, scuba diving, snorkeling and so on.

Handy to have the 7/11 and food court if you want to hang out. Western bar overlooks the sea if you are in desperate needs.

If your into seein g the worst in toruist development go here, big secuirty gate resorts, not much of the original area left in tact. It is a long way from Kuching, luckily we passed through it on tours and did not do a special trip which we were thinking of, do not swim at the beach = crocodiles. Sarawak Cultural Village is here in the area and worth it through - be first in the morning for hat.

The good:

Place - Excellent view for sunset and to enjoy the sea breeze. It is also located between Damai Beach and Damai Puri. Not to mention it is also located opposite Sarawak Cultural Village. Oh they just have a horse placed there. A real horse.

Food and beverages - Variety of stalls to choose from. There is a also a restaurant there plus a 7 Eleven convenient store.

The Bad:
Toilets - Needs improvement. Very dirty and flush is out of order. Even the soap dispenser is out of order.

Surroundings - Needs improvement too, or a reminder (sign) of no littering. Increase trash cans in suitable area especially the food court. Benches need repairs, probably using concrete which lasts longer instead of wood.

Signs - The area needs certain sign boards, reminder to guests/travelers.

Lighting - Needs more lighting in certain area, especially along the path towards the carpark for safety reasons.

The place is situated near some beach resorts. It has 7-11, a restaurant some shops inside, and also a food stalls.

there's also a bar located inside, but usually open during night time.

during day time, there's not much shade to shelter from the sun if you are not inside the area but you will miss out the beach.

the 7-11 slurpee machine is always on "out of service" status

the seafood restaurant has been taken over by a new management and the food quality has gone down the drain ever since. the only nice dish is their butter prawn.

food stall food is on the low side. you have to pay entrance fee if you want to go to the toilet. parking fee is applicable.
