In order to raise the tourism activities while balancing the impact of industrial development, Bintulu Development Authority took a bold step to establish a new recreational facility known as the Bintulu Promenade.
In its own uniqueness, Bintulu Promenade presents a beautiful and serene panorama. With the convergence of Kemena River and the South China Sea as its focus point, Bintulu Promenade is the most strategic part of town to witness the sunset. For photographers, it is also the best place to record such a beautiful moment of the day.
From the Bintulu Promenade, one can witness some of the economic activities in this town. Fishing vessels coming from and going to the sea is a common scene while occasionally barges fully laden with timber would also passed by.
Three observatory points are featured, offering visitors to Bintulu Promenade to watch how the development had been brought about through the activities of the oil and gas industries in Bintulu, as well as the growth in the oil palm industries. Large vessels can be seen berthing, replenishing their stocks as well as ladening raw materials from Bintulu to fulfill the needs of the outside world. It is truly a beautiful and unique scene that can be observed and enjoyed only from the Bintulu Promenande.
With a cost reaching RM17 million, modern concept in landscape design is incorporated. The elements of nature and surroundings are blended well to create a picturesque and significant design.
Harmonising the scenic view of the Kemena Rivermouth and the South China Sea, its three kilometre length offers a breath-taking attraction. Bridges and observatory points are designed with the creative combination of concrete and wood that stir a feeling of reluctance to leave among those who stopped by.
Equipped with security centre , restrooms, unique lighting designs and plots of plants of various species, the Bintulu promenade is also a great place to unwind and enjoying a relaxing moment after a stressful day.
