Tanjung Datu National Park
Tanjung Datu National Park is situated at the western most tip of Sarawakon the Datu Penisula. It is one of the smallest parks in Sarawak. Half of the peninsula is situated within Sarawak and the other portion lies in Kalimantan, Indonesia.
Due to its remote location, the park offers a spectacular destination for nature-based tourism. The park boasts splendid rain forest, mountain ranges, unpolluted crystal clear water and unique coral reefs. There is a wide range of marine life including egg laying turtles.
The Park has yet to be officially opened to public. However, visitors cen get a permit to visit the park from the Sarawak Forest Department. Visitors to the park are encouraged to travel during the month of April to September when the sea is calm.
