The best beach in the world

Kelambu beach is truly the best beach in the world.

However it is little appreciated by locals. It is due to the fact that Sabah used to have much finer beaches than this one.

Most early residents in Sabah, i.e. my ancestors build houses on sheltered beaches. Yes, they were beaches, and not just on the sand, but on the watery part of the beaches.

They had chosen the best locations in Sabah. Kelambu beach is not even well regarded by locals but it is now the only remaining good beach in Sabah. Other beaches are located at remote islands.

This Kelambu beach is unique in that it has an island right in front of it, and we can walk towards it safely. It also meant that there are two bays with fine beaches on both sides of the island. Yes, they are bays, instead of just a straight beach.

The best part of all, is that it is totally uninhabited.

I say a similar beach in Sri Lanka with a house on top of the Island. It was featured in an article in Reader's Digest, Asian Edition.

I also say an Indian film, where the actor and actresses dance on the beach next to an island, and noting how beautiful it was. Suddenly I met this Kelambu beach and noted how unique and beautiful it really is. I don't have the desire or time to swim at this beach. Nor was my family. Maybe it is sufficient for us to savour its beauty. These beaches are meant for viewing, not to be spoiled with swimming.

The million dollar question is how long it will last. With all reclaimation works being done all over the beaches in Sabah, it is only a matter of time before it will be filled up.

Panoramic pictures

These pictures are best viewed using panoramic picture viewer. They are all in the form of 360x180 degree 2:1 format.

That means they represent complete view of the surrounding from the point of view of the photographer.

They are useable as photo sceneries for Radio Control Flight Simulators but are of lower resolution i.e. 512x256, which are just good enough for this blog page.

There are other blogspots which support my interest in these panoramic pictures.

All materials in here are copyrighted by me but are for sale, from zero to whatever the buyer is willing to pay. It all depends on their uses.

Most are available in the form of 8060 resolution which are used for RC Fsim but the originals are mostly of the 14000 resolution because they are taken with 2M pixel camera.

Sabah is truly heaven.

I shall dedicate this blogspot for discussing and proving that Sabah is really heaven on earth.

I shall insert panoramic photos of a few places that I had taken. They are meant for RC Simulator use.
