Kota Kinabalu is a famous city facing the sea. One no need to travel far to enjoy the sea breeze of Kota Kinabalu. About 20-25 minutes driving from the city center heading towards the biggest university in the state is Tanjung Lipat beach. I had the opportunity to join a barbecue party in early October 2012 there.
Although the weather was unpredictable throughout the week, we were lucky that the rain stopped just in time when we all had arrived there. I didn't take any picture but had made a video instead to show the area of the open beach. The city council had made the open beach area beautiful and prepared basic necessities for families and groups to enjoy the sea while doing fun activities.
