fishermen on small double outrigger canoe


A fisherman and his son are going fishing with their small canoe before sunset.­

This is Kelambu beach.­ Truly a beautiful secluded beach, hard to reach and far away for the nearest village.­ I decided to camp on that desert beach.­

Photos of Kelambu Beach (Borneo)

Kelambu is a Tied Island covered by small rain forest, connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of white sand called a tombolo (a particular type of shoal connecting the mainland to an island).­ On each side of the shoal, two beautiful desert beaches and very calm, blue sea water.­

Kelambu is truly a beautiful secluded beach, hard to reach and far away for the nearest village.­ I decided to spend one night on that desert beach.­

In the night, a couple of local guys came on a motorbike with snorkeling gear, waterproof flash lights and fishing spearguns.­ They swam out from the beach and did their night spear-fishing for an hour or so.­ They came back with a lot of fish in their nets!
