Miri is a gateway city with many attractions in the nature of culture, night life and nature. More so than anything, it has amazing seaside attractions.
Tusan Beach is one of the most well-known beaches in Miri, located about 30 minutes from the city. It is popular for its horse-shaped cliff and its bioluminescent phytoplankton, also known as the ‘Blue Tears’ that cause the waves and seas edge to glow blue.
Tanjong Lobang Beach, also known as Brighton Beach, is just 5 minutes from downtown Miri and has a food bazaar nearby where visitors can eat seafood and watch the sunset.
Bungai Beach is 45 minutes from Miri city and provides a relatively private getaway spot for people to relax and swim in the clear waters. Surrounded by pristine nature, it’s located near Kampung Bungai and Kampung Peliau, local fisherman villages which sell food and have homestay options for travellers.
Next to the seahorse lighthouse is the Coco Cabana which sells amazing food at its café, seaside swings and benches to watch the sunset on, with the scenic seahorse lighthouse looming overhead.
