What we say: 4 stars

Tanjung Rhu beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island and amazingly is one of the most undeveloped.

This coral sand beach stretches from the end of Black Sand Beach to the east were it meets the river estuary that leads to the small boat harbour where you can hire boats for mangrove and cave tours. There two 5 Star resorts located here that limit access to the central run of the beach.

However where Jalan Tanjung Rhu first meets the sea there is a long stretch of beach with easy public access. If you travel up the road past the Four Seasons resort you will encounter a guard post on the road onwards past the Tanjung Rhu Resort. Don’t let this intimidate you. You may have to sign an entry form but this road leads on to the harbour and the wide expanse of beach at the estuary entrance.

There is small village here that has a few very reasonably priced seafood restaurants and some nice shops, a tour desk and of course the beach.
