Discovering Telok Melano

This was where it all began. Where a highway was built on. A secluded village with  a beautiful beachline.  Opening for public use recently, this road comnecting Telok Melano village to Sematan stretch of Pan Borneo Highway.


We went for a day trip to Telok Melano in Sematan last Saturday. Slightly more than 1.5 hours drive along the Pan Borneo Highway, not included the time we stopped for breakfast along the way. We reached the 0km of the Pan Borneo destination.


Initially planned to do so over the school holiday but hubby was busy on both weekends and I wasn't well on the day we planned to go. So we postponed to the following weekend.

It was a warm morning. We started off with very foggy drive but when the morning set in, the fog cleared and we had a nice countryside view.

Lovely view of the mountain. I believe that is where the Tanjung Datu national park is located.

The junction to Telok Melano was on the right side, along the way to Sematan. New road so it was a very nice and smooth drive.


At the end of the highway was Telok Melano. We spotted some canopies where trade ministry organised some exhibition and sales booth.




We hurriedly walked to the beach. The others could not wait to hit the sea. Yours truly just enjoyed herself taking photographs and sun bathing on the beach. 







We spent a good 2 hours on the beach. A fun Saturday discovering a new place.

  4. It looks all right now. When the road was first opened and the crowd made a beeline there, it ended up looking like a rubbish dump. So terrible, those people, so uncivilised, not civic-minded.

    Well, Sibu is more or less the same - the municipal council employs people to collect all the rubbish on the roads every morning and that is why the town looks so clean. I can imagine how dirty it would be if they do not do that!
