Location : Tanjung Simpang Mengayau, Kudat Division, Sabah, Malaysia.
“Simpang Mengayau means ‘lingering junction’ as it is here that the South China Sea lingers and meets the Sulu Seas flowing from the east . It is located in the Kudat Peninsula, about three and a half hours (or 215 kilometres) drive from Kota Kinabalu City.”
Driving out of Kudatand heading for the Tip of Borneo, we decided to make a quick visit to Bak Bak beach situated on the east side. Beautiful place but no accommodation or visitors other than the 3 of us. I believe it caters more for the locals during the weekends.

We continued on through quite a bad patch of dirt road before passing through a village with a narrow and winding road. The first thing upon arrival at the newly built car park was to check out the open air venue of the annual Sunset Music Festival which will be held on 3rd and 4th June 2016.

Next was the famous globe and a couple of selfies to do some justice to its fame.

With the low tide, it was possible to walk all the way to the very end of the tip where the 2 seas of Sulu and South China are divided here.

Awesome art of nature
Along the beachfront we noticed at least 5 B&Bs and chalets with prices ranging from RM40 to RM500, offering lots of outdoor activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling, deep sea angling, kayaking and surfing.
