Pantai Pasir Panjang Kuching is located some 30 minutes from Kuching City.
It is located just beside Pantai Pasir Pandak, which is less accessible (and popular) due to its proximity to the Kampung Pasir Pandak. Due to this, some locals have mistaken Pantai Pasir Panjang as Pantai Pasir Pandak.
Pantai Pasir Panjang has a long white sandy coast line which emerges when the tide is low.
What to expect at Pantai Pasir Panjang Kuching
Like most of Kuching’s local beaches, there’s little going on at Pantai Pasir Panjang with the beach likely to be visited by locals especially in the evenings.
There’s no entry fee into the beach itself, but parking is chargeable.
Bathing in the sea is advised when the tide is low, but be wary of objects under the sand as there has been reports of construction debris found under the sand.
At times, there are also ‘treasure hunters’ looking for things buried under the sand as they walk along the beach with their metal detectors.
The beach has a nice view of the the Santubong mountain and is good for picnics.
How to get to Pantai Pasir Panjang Kuching
The only way to get to this beach is by private car/bike.
The road to the beach is sealed which enables smaller cars to also drive right up to the parking area prepared.
Pantai Pasir Panjang Kuching and the future
The beach itself has undergone some development in the past but lack of maintenance has seen most of these facilities being left in poor state.
It is hoped that something will be done to improve conditions.
