    Tanjung Bidara beach

    The colorful pier of Tanjung Bidara

    Tanjung Bidara beach is located about 10km from Masjid Tanah town and 35km north of the historical city of Melaka. The road leading to the beach resort is also picturesque with many paddy fields and Malay kampung houses along the road.

    The beach is popular among the locals, maybe due to the fact that it is the only beach in the state of Melaka that is clean and safe enough for a good swim with its sandy beaches and shady casuarinas.

    More Beach Sight...

    An excursion from KL, in Tg. Biadara

    More beach sight at Tanjung Bidara Beach.
    You really have to arrive at this beach if you are in Kuala Lumpur ! It'll be about 3 hours the most, by express buses or a taxi or better still, rent a car (if you know the roads in Malaysia...).

    Sea-Shell...

    An empty shell...in Tg. Bidara.

    Another 'sea-shell'....an empty one, lied on the rock...
    I picked it up & put it in my bag, unlike the 'belangkas' which was too big for me to carry anyway...
    That's what normally people like to do when walking on the beach right ?....Picking whatever we could find ?..
    Whatever...

    My nephew & niece by the sea in Tg. Bidara...

    These 2 kids playing by the sea...well, they are my nephew & niece !
    They had their first big walking by the sea just to accompany me taking photos...
    Whenever I was busy focussing on something, they would take times to 'wet' their feet....

    Pre-Historic Sea Creature...

    by coceng Updated Nov 30, 2003

    MACAM BELANGKAS !...in Tg. Bidara...

    if you are lucky, you would be able to see some pre-historic sea creatures creeping out from the sea into the beach of Tanjung Bidara.
    I really don't know the name in English but in Malay it's called 'belangkas.
    Normally 'belangkas' comes in pairs...as the Malay proverb "MACAM BELANGKAS ! IT MEANS IF 2 PERSONS ARE ALWAYS TOGETHER WHEREVER THEY GO, THEY ARE 'LIKE BELANGKAS !".
    It does look like a pre-historic sea creature yes ? Anyway, you can see this creature...once in a while; We don't eat them but we like to use their shells to hang on walls !

    Clean huge rocks in Tg. Bidara...

    More huge rocks around Tanjung Bidara Beach.
    Normally when it comes to rocks, people like to scribble something on them...yes ?
    Well, not here...I wonder why ?...Not that I want to start doing that errant !
    The scenery does look like coming to an uncharted island...
    Anyway, just enjoy the sight...

    My Paradise...in Tg. Bidara

    I love this...there's nobody in sight ! Just like as I remember the sight from the last 10 years or so...
    Me & friends would run around the area like kids...making it our 'paradise' !
    I am not a beach person, neither I could swim well, but being in a place this beautiful, this tranquil, this clean...makes me want to 'preserve' the vibe for a long time indeed !

    Clean & beautiful in Tg. Bidara...

    Tanjung Bidara Beach is clean & a great place to be in !
    As you walk further, the Malay village/houses will be more scarce; Instead bushes & trees would take the areas...
    Looking at these photos bring back many memories for me...It feels that it has been preserved for the last 10 years or so !

    More boats by the sea...in Tg. Bidara

    If the front of you is the Strait of Melaka (the sea...) then, behind you would be Malay 'kampungs' or Malay villages where everyday activities can be seen....
    On the photo is another line of boats residing be the trees...

    Beautiful Beach...

    Beautiful beach...in Tg. Bidara

    Tanjung Bidara Beach is considered as one of the most beautiful beaches in Malaysia but not many people know this yet.
    Maybe it's also a bit further from Melaka Town...25 km away.
    This is good as you don't get to see that many 'outside' tourists lying on the beach here apart from some local families & their relatives from the cities.
    For me, I do bring my visiting friends to this tranquil beach....

    Some Fishermen...

    Fishermen standing on the beach in Tg. Bidara

    Some fishermen could also make a small catch at certain hours of the days by just throwing baits (attached to a nylon string...) into the sea & holding the nylon line by just standing on the beach...
    As you could see from the photo, the 2 guys would wait for hours...Maybe just for fun, they would wait patiently for the fish to eat their baits.

    Fishermen's boats in Tg. Bidara...

    We get to see some fishermen's boats lied underneath trees, along the beach.
    Tanjung Bidara Beach is situated by the Strait of Melaka.
    If you are on this beach say around 8 to 10 a.m, you get to see the fishermen with their catch of fish & the net being pulled....to be hanged on trees.

    The start of Tanjung Bidara Beach...

    Many people come to Masjid Tanah because they want to go to Tanjung Bidara Beach.
    It is about 7 km away from Masjid Tanah & it is a beautiful beach !
    It is told that this is the only beach which is safe & clean enough for a good swim in Melaka State.
    NOTE :
    I had the time to walk from one stretch of the beach to another side, about 4 km the length.
    So, you get to see the sights of the Tanjung Bidara Beach as captured by me...

    Here on Tanjung Bidara Beach, we get to see big stones by the beach, near the water.
    Many sea creatures dwell themself, clung to these huge rocks....
