The west coast of Sabah is blessed with many beautiful beaches, while the popular ones have made it to the travelling books, there are still many beaches yet to be covered by the mass media. One of these less visit beaches, even by the local standard, is Melinsung Beach, which lies 28 km south of Kota Kinablu, and only 8 km away from Papar town. This 3 km long sandy beach is connected to a shallow sea bed and is constantly washed up by the gentle waves from the South China Sea. The tall Pine trees along the beach seem to go on forever, creating a great perspective view, and some drift woods scattered along the beach giving it a more rusty look. On a clear day when the big blue sky open up ones are easily enchanted by the beauty that nature provides. The unobstructed horizon also offers an unforgettable sunset view. Melinsung Beach is a much sort after addition, for those who prefer a serene, quiet, and peaceful beach.
