Not far from Tip of Borneo. White sand, blue sea. A great place to enjoy the beautiful of mother nature. BUT, there are rubbish on the beach. I hope the local authority can do something about the rubbish to keep this place clean.

Such a beautiful and secluded beach. No one is around and its like having the beach all to yourself. Local council should take note of the housekeeping issues.
