Sunset at Tanjung Aru Beach, Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

At Tajung Aru beach of Kota Kinabalu I saw one of the most stunning sunsets of my life. The sky took on a golden yellow complexion, but soon changed to bright orange. Later it sobered down to pink till darkness conquered it completely.

Tajung Aru beach is one of the top 10 sunset view points of Kota Kinabalu. At a distance in the South China Sea you can see the Sulug and Manukan Island. It is said that when you glace out of planes flying over South China Sea, you can see the Manukan, Mamutik and Sulug islands forming a cheerful smiley face. These islands belong to a list of 12 islands forming amazing contours. See the list here.

(This visit was possible due to my FAM trip to Malaysia, courtesy Tourism Malaysia.)
