    A Piece of Heaven Called Temajuk Beach

    Feeling exotic virgin beaches on the border of Indonesia and Malaysia will definitely become unforgettable memories. Far and tiring trip to a remote village in Paloh District, Sambas Regency will pay off when saw the blue sea and white sand beaches of Temajuk Beach. The beach is just 4 km from the Indonesia-Malaysia border, and you can get there for a feel on the frontline of this country, or just take pictures on the background of flag of the two countries.

    Temajuk marks the point where Indonesia ends and Malaysia starts. Not yet known to many domestic and international travellers, Temajuk Village features a tidal beach with soft, white sands dotted with granite rocks. Underwater sightseeing is made possible as the water is clear.

    Temajuk beach, actually running at a very long 60 km of coastline, is a tidal coast area featuring soft, white sand and preserved environment. One thing that differs this beach from Balinese beaches is portruding granite rocks distributed evenly throughout the coastal environment.

    In places, granite rocks formations are in touch with corals. Best place to enjoy these formations is a certain location called Batu Pipih. In addition, the water along the beach is clear and offers good visibility, making it possible for snorkelers to do a short sightseeing underwater. It is no wonder that sea turtles choose Temajuk beach as their hatching place.

    Some surfers have also tried the waves here - during Februrary-October, waves can hike up to 2 meters.

    While the beach runs a very long 60 km-line, tourist and travelers activities are centered at Temajuk Village. It was Mr. Atong, a native to the village, who in 2010 started to shape the area into a tourist destination. He transformed a piece of his family land into a professional destination, independently managed.

    At Atong Bahari Bay, Mr. Atong innitiated a homestay. As the area is not yet too crowded, visitors can always find a shelter here. If Mr. Atong homestay is full, they are welcomed to stay at people's houses. So far, however, visitors are dominated by domestic tourists.

    The village and its beach are not easy to catch, however. They are located at northernmost point of Indonesian Borneo, only 4 km away from Malaysia's Melano Bay. Visitors start from Singkawang to the direction of Sambas. It is a 6-hours journey on a 200-km route.

    The journey then continues to Kartiasa where we have to board a ferry to cross a big Borneo river. Once landed, we continue to the direction of Paloh, tracking a route with lots of improvement projects. We still need to cross two more rivers in a 50-km route afterwards before reaching Temajuk Village.
