This is a panorama (taken with an iPhone 4s today ) of the Tanjung Aru Beach, Kota Kinabalu (click on picture for full vista).
Enjoy the scenery while you can. Soon the beach as you know now will be no more. The announced Tanjung Aru Eco Development project will build high end and high-priced resorts and condos. The beach will be reclaimed to make a lagoon marina. Not sure if there will be public access anymore; if there are, it will cost you. Remember the seaside before Sutera Harbour was built?
