Similajau National Park
Gazetted as a park in 1976 and located 30 km north-east of the town of Bintulu, Similajau National Park’s main aim was to offer a conservation zone for the unique geographical features of the coast and to protect the flora and fauna of the surrounding area. Popular destination at weekends, this park in Sarawak covers an area of 8,996 Park is its coastline, a chain of golden sandy beaches, peppered by small rocky headlands and jungle streams, bordered by dense green forest.
Best visited during the dry season from the month of February to October, this is when the coastline is at most beautiful with bright crystal green waters that are ideal for swimming.
By Road – A public bus service operated by Syarikat Bus Bintulu Sdn Bhd. (SBBS) plies between Bintulu town and the junction of the road leading to the Park (RH Jarau). The junction is called Sungai Plant Lot. You need additional transport for the last 9km to the Park Office. Hailing a ride is your best bet. Alternatively, a chartered boat takes you there from Bintulu town. However your best bet – by far – is to either charter a taxi for the day or hire a car.
