Tour Description:

Located roughly 30 kilometres from Kota Kinabalu near Tuaran, Aru Bay is a paradise that overlooks the South China Sea. Many visit this location for the sunset view alone; it’s that scenic! You’ll arrive at Aru Bay and have time to enjoy a delicious high tea of banana fritters and coffee, as well as explore the area on your own. There are a handful of watersports as well as cultural activities such as henna drawing and batik painting as well.

When day turns to night, you will be guided towards the beach area where you will have the best view of the gorgeous sunset, streaking the skies in all its purple, orange, and pink glory. Taking a selfie here, is a must. You will also be served a lovely dinner of local delights to accompany the beautiful view.

After you are done with dinner, you will then be taken aboard on an hour-long cruise. Sit back and watch the fireflies dance and sparkle their way as they light up the now dark night sky. Fireflies, also known as Lightning Bugs, shine brightly at night time in order to attract a suitable mate. They are also able to glow in the day time, but our eyes cannot see it. Watching fireflies at night is said to be truly mesmerising. This is because the whole colony often synchronise their flashing lights, similar to twinkling lights on a Christmas tree, or stars on a clear night.
