Tanjung Datu National Park is the smallest national park in Sarawak at just under 14 square kilometers but it is also by far the most beautiful.

Trail from Kampong Melano to Tanjung Datu National Park, BorneoThe park is located at the very south-western tip of Sarawak on the Datu Peninsula, bordering Indonesia. Its geography comprises a narrow ridge of rugged forest-covered hills fringed by pristine white sand beaches, crystal clear waters and patches of coral reef. It is one of the least visited but one of most attractive parks in Malaysian Borneo.

As it is so isolated and difficult to get to it has remained largely untouched with just a simple park headquarters and a handful of trails that take you into the rainforest, or around the coast.
