Create an itinerary including Tanjung Aru Beach
On New Year's Day 2012, the Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Hj Aman announced a project known as the 'Tanjung Aru Regeneration Project' which is meant to be a New Year's gift for the people of Sabah.

The project was later formalised as the Tanjung Aru Eco Development Project which was formally announced by the Prime Minister on September 16th, 2013 during the national Malaysia Day celebration.

Through the Tanjung Aru Eco Development project (TAED), we are restoring the splendour of Tanjung Aru Beach and enhancing Prince Philip Park to what they used to be in the past.

We are driven by the need to save our iconic waterfront from the threats of coastal erosion and pollution to ensure that our treasured public spaces are rehabilitated, rejuvenated and renewed.

Tanjung Aru Eco Development Sdn Bhd will:

- preserve the area as a perpetual heritage for the people of Sabah

- create a new coastal protection system to replace failing sea walls

- extend the length and breadth of Tanjung Aru Beach

- double the size of Prince Philip Park

- improve amenities to enhance recreation

- ensure the beach and the park remain public recreational spaces forever

The TAED revival project is not just about the beach and the park. The planned re-development of land behind Tanjung Aru beach and Prince Philip Park will create an eco-tourism icon and a premier tourism destination.

This eco-tourism gateway will be a new engine of growth, creating new job opportunities for all Sabahans and making lives better for future generations of Sabahans.

As a World Class Gateway to the Wonders of Sabah, Tanjung Aru will become a gift to be shared by the people of Sabah for generations to come.

  • There were a lot of trash, i even saw a mattress! a lot of plastic bottles and plastic bags. Besides education, i think enforcement is needed to control this problem

  • This place is still a great spot to watch sunsets. Spending time with your love ones and even for yourself. But somehow, there are a number of people who go there at night while there is no night market there. Maybe they have business there.
  • I enjoyed going here at evening before the sun goes down. If the weather is good, you got a chance to experience the best sunset view in the world! I guarantee it ✨ The stall are selling various types of foods. So suitable to bring your family here..
