SUNSET/SUNRISE AT THE PIASAU BOAT CLUB
I often park my car at the Piasau Boat Club (PBC) in the evening and go for a jog or a gentle walk along the beach, followed by a sundowner beer at the Beachcomber Bar
I believe we are blessed with some of the most beautiful Sunsets in the world. I went to Bali in January. The sunsets in Bali were impressive but not as beautiful as the Miri Sunsets. These are some of photos I have taken with my mobile during my evening jog.

PBC Beach: fishing boat close to beach. This was in the month of March. That the season for fishing for small prawns/shrimps. I think that’s what he is fishing for. They then sell the small prawns/shrimps at the stalls opposite Lutong Airstrip . The shrimps are then crushed and mixed with seasoning to make Belacan paste. You have probably eaten Belacan with local spicy dishes.
Lutong Beach Videos
If you want to go for a jog are a walk just over 2 km north of the PBC is the Lutong Beach. It’s a very popular beach with lots of activities especially at weekend
If you watch these videos will notice wooden piles just popping out the sand. These wooden piles are thought to be the remains of a World War 2 Japanese Bunker and the site is being propose by Sarawak Heritage Society as a Gazetted Heritage Site . If you want to learn more go to Interesting historical photos of Miri?
I also published this YouTube video of these mysterious wooden piles:
The long Concrete piles sticking up a few meter high out of the sand were installed by Shell in the 1980’s to prevent coastline erosion. At the time these piles where on the coastline. This gives an idea of the rate of coastline erosion. Its just a matter of time before the beach reaches Jalan Pantai.
If go on the Beach my only advice is “WEAR SUNSCREEN”
