  Gunung Gading National Park
Located on the way to Pandan Beach is a popular weekend picnic spots for its clear mountain streams and beautiful waterfall.
  Pandan Beach
which is located west of Lundu at Kampung Pandan is accessible via Lundu-Pandan Road.

Pandan Beach - about 10 km's down the road past Gunung Gading National Park entrance. Was busy when we were there as was a public holiday. Nice wave action, a strom was brewing then. Small tuckshops, east simple meals, public toilet and bathing facilities.

  Sempandi Island
3. Pulau Sempadi - privately owned island near Satang, no one lives there. Small beach but great big rocks all around. Access was arranged by the farmstay people we stayed with.

Lundu has 3 beaches:

Two on the west via Lundu-Pandan Road and
one on the East via Lundu-Sempadi Road

Siar Beach
which is located west of Lundu at Kampung Pandan is accessible via Lundu-Pandan Road.

 

  Sematan Beach
Including Abang Amin Beach, Sungai Kilong Beach and Pueh Beach

Could be reached via Jalan Lundu-Sematan. Collectively called Sematan Beach.
  Rambungan Beach is accessible via Jalan Lundu-Sempadi.A nice location for a weekend getaway.
Quiet and peaceful and you can take a boat ride across to Sempandi Island.

Rambungan Beach - on the way to Gunung Gading National Park from the Matang Wildlife Center via Sempadi road. Very quiet and a very long stretch. Locals also refer to it as Sempadi Beach.



Lundu is a sleepy up-country town comprising a few rows of shop houses, a small market, government buildings and some attractive kampung houses, inhabited by very friendly residents.

The town is a good base to explore the area if the national park accommodation is full.

In addition to Gunung Gading there are some attractive beaches nearby, including Siar and Pandan.

The Ocean Resort at Siar beach offers 2-bedroom family chalets complete with kitchen and cooking facilities.

There are some beach huts and chalets at Pandan beach, but they are overpriced for the basic facilities they offer so staying in town or at the Park HQ is more convenient and better value.

Lundu has two budget hotels, a few food stalls and restaurants, and regular bus departures to Kuching and Sematan.


Lundu Town Center

The town center is a few rows of shops.

On weekends, there is a market selling vegetables, meats, and various items.

With a new road and a bridge across Batang Kayan river, Lundu has suddenly become very accessible. Lundu, renowned for its unspoilt beaches and Gunung Gading National Park, that houses the Rafflesia, is currently only accessible from Kuching via a new bridge across the Batang Kayan River
The bridge was opened on July 7, 2005. The road from Kuching to Lundu measures about 90 km.

This new road from Kuching to Lundu is straightened and sealed. The old road used to be a four-hour trip is now one smooth hour.

Most visitors come to Lundu District for Sand, Sun and Sea. Both Lundu Town and Sematan Town offer a few popular beaches within driving distances.  Wide, clean sands of Sematan beach, half an hourís drive from Lundu, were a popular holiday resort. Today the hobby fishermen are heading for Sematan, eager to catch the barramundi introduced here by the Agriculture Department.
The attraction is the sea itself, for swimming, diving and playing. Thereís fresh seafood when the boats come in, crabs crawl on the rocks, and thereís a lively ikan pusu industry at the right season. When schools of the tiny anchovies swarm, the whole village is out there in the chest-deep water, hanging on to one long, fine net. Willing tourists are press-ganged into the operation, particularly the taller fellows!

Other visitors go to the Gunung Gading National Park (1983).Today it is easily accessible; there are chalets for overnight accommodation. Gunung Gadingís claim to fame, besides the waterfall and a very diverse bird population, is the Rafflesia. This malodorous wonder is the worldís biggest bloom, reaching diameters of up to one meter. Rafflesia buds resembling purple cabbages lie in the dank jungle for months, until the time is right for the bright orange petals to unfold, revealing a variously dotted centre with bright tufts and emitting a very distinct ... scent. Where to stay:

Numerous chalets and small Ďresortsí have sprung up, especially in Siar, Pandan and Sematan.

Lundu, this coastal village town is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination in Sarawak.

Lundu is  located in the south-western part of the Kuching Division and bordering West Kalimantan, Indonesia, offered attractive tourism products such as waterfalls, beaches and the national park. Lundu district and Sematan sub-district have natural attractions for tourist destinations.

When you visit Kuching, make your trip to Kuching a complete holiday trip with a day tour to explore the nature countryside in Lundu. There are unspoiled beaches in Lundu and Sematan  waiting to be discovered.

The journey to the small town of Lundu is only 60-minute drive from Kuching on decent roads.

There are low cost budget hotels in Lundu at RM40.

The journey pass through several pepper plantations.

There are also several stalls along the way selling native fruits such as the small local bananas, rambutan and durian. The local fruits are always fresh.

In between the highway is  a small river crossing. A new bridge was completed in 2008. The river itself is around 100 feet wide. Once you cross the bridge,  Lundu is in sight in minutes.

This small town is divided up into ethnic areas - a typical Malay village and a typical Iban village.

 

Lundu is the gateway to some tropical attractions. The most popular destination is Gunung Gading National Park, home of the Rafflesia Flower, the world's largest flower. A full blooms of this flower reach diameters of one meter.

Gunung Gading Park has facilities to stay in and is well-maintained.

Hiking trails go up a small mountain and at the bottom of the trail is a natural-spring swimming pond cool and refreshing.

There are also two nice and deserted beaches - Pandan, and Siar beaches. Since most tourists donít come this way and beaches arenít that special to the locals, you can get some real privacy here.

There are a chalets for rent. They are simple structures and have good locations right on the beaches.

30 minutes little further away from Lundu is Sematan beach. Another deserted awesome little beach with  a nice little protected swimming area between two large rock formations. The beach is a nice, smooth coral sand and you can walk on the beach quite a ways before coming to any kind of house or settlement.

Lundu, My Hometown Is Flooding

What do we get when king tide and continuous heavy rain for days occur concurrently? A recipe for flood of course.

Around this time of the year, low lying areas are very prone to flooding due to the heavy monsoon rain.

While (heavy) flood can be bad for the economy and dangerous to lives, the irony is that, to some extent, it can be fun to watch and experience. That just happened in my hometown, Lundu, a few hours ago.........
