Sunset In Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

Sunset In Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia


The City of Kota Kinabalu, located in Sabah, Malaysia, are known to produce some of the greatest sunsets, as long as it is not too cloudy or not raining, you can almost guarantee some stunning sunsets, in fact, most often then not, cloudy skies actually make the most dramatic sunset you have even see.  The locals are so used to the spectacular sunset around here, it’s no longer spectacular.  And most do not understand why this is such a big deal for those who are not from around there.  Lets look at some of the stunning sunsets the city can offer.

These sunset photos are taking in Tanjun Aru beach 3, a somewhat local beach right by an airport.  This beach is great for scenic viewing, watching the airplane come in and out, fishing, BBQ, family outing and all sort of friendly and healthy activity.  And at night and in the dark, it turn to a great spot for young couple to do what they like to do in the dark~  still friendly and healthy, but please, don’t ask don’t tell.

Sunset in Kota Kinabalu starts at around 5pm and ends at around 7pm.

The beautiful golden color starts way before the sun is even remotely close to the horizon.  So you actually get plenty of time to enjoy the amazing sunset colors.  Notice those two kayaks on the water?

The view was stunning enough from the shore, can you imagine what kind of view they are getting from the kayak?  Those lucky ba…..

This is also a great spot for recreational fishing for the locals, they came here before sunset and fish to the night, supposedly the best time to have a good catch.  Although I have never catch anything there, but hey, with this kind of view, who cares, catching or not is really no longer important.  Just relax, grab a cold one and enjoy nature’s best show that is unrivaled to even the most advance and most expensive Ultra 4K HDTV.  And if you are lucky enough to catch anything, that’s a bonus, and straight it goes to the BBQ pit~

The locals sure know how to take advantage of what their environment can offer and taking in every bit of the breathless beauty.

As they say, all good things must end, but this golden and fire-ly sunset goodness sure last for a while, basking everybody who are lucky enough to be there with all it’s glory and grace.
