This unusual beach is located just north around the corner from Sekiu. The beach gives way to a rocky platform in both directions, but there's something here that allows the beach to persist. This may be part of one of the many big landslides that dot this coastline - something about this Tertiary sedimentary rock that can't stand up well on its own. But is this sand all derived from the local sandstone, or is it glacial or other Pleistocene debris?
