1 PIASAU BOAT CLUB INFORMATION
I have been a member of Piasau Boat Club for many years. During a recent discussion between members, it was it was mentioned that some people in Miri did not know that the Piasau Boat Club even existed . Well I have been going there on a regular base for many years and I can confirm it does exist. The problem is if you are already a member or live in the immediate area, you know all about the Piasau Boat Club (PBC). I hope posting this topic makes the wider Miri Community aware of the existence of the Piasau Boat Club (PBC) and what it has to offer .

2 PIASAU BOAT CLUB LOCATION. HOW TO GET THERE
Also, it was mentioned in our conversation that many people don’t know where the Piasau Boat Club is Located. It is a bit off the beaten track and not well sign posted but readily accessible and close to most location in Miri. Just drive over the Piasau Bridge and turn left at the traffic lights. Travel along Jalan Peninsula. Take the second turn on the right then just follow the signs post for Piasau Boat Club (PBC). . See map below;
Piasau Boat Club (PBC) is located a secluded attractive location close to the beach and adjacent to the Puasai Nature Reserve.
PIASAU BOAT CLUB ACCESS FOR NON-MEMBERS/PUBLIC:
Another misconception about the Boat Club is you can’t get access the Club Area if you are not a member. That is no longer true. The Beachcomber Bar and Restaurant open to the public Monday to Sunday. See link for details: http://piasauboatclub.com/2019/01/04/piasau-boat-club-beachcomber-and-restaurant-now-open-for-the-public/

PIASAU BOAT CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS NOT JUST FOR SHELL & PETRONAS STAFF;

PIASAU “BOAT CLUB” IS NOT JUST ABOUT BOATS
The name “Boat Club” often creates a miss conception of what the Piasau Boat Club (PBC) is all about. Originally it was a basically a Boat Club but over the years it has evolved in to a Sport and Recreation Club. While it still does have excellent Boating/Water Sport facilities it also cater for many other sporting and social actives including a well-equipped Gym, Tennis Court, Squash Court, Climbing Wall etc.
If you are looking for a good gym, this is probably the best gym in Miri. You can get cheaper gyms but if you look at the other facilities available for club membership it is probably the best value for money. See link: Gym – Piasau Boat Club
I have made a video of the drive from the Piasau Bridge to the Piasau Boat Club park. I hope this helps you find the PBC if you have never been there before. Click link below
