Welcome to Bako National Park
The coastline of the 27-sq-km peninsula consists of secluded beaches and bays interspersed with wind-sculpted cliffs, forests and stretches of tangled mangroves. The interior of the park features distinct ecosystems, including classic lowland rainforest (mixed dipterocarp forest) and kerangas (heath forest), streams and waterfalls. Hiking trails traverse the central sandstone plateau and connect with several of the beaches.
Bako is an easy day trip from Kuching, but it's best to stay a night or two to fully experience the wild beauty and have the best chance of seeing wildlife.
