The Tanjung Aru Beach is located about 6 Kilometers from Kota Kinabalu City. Locals here flock to this area during weekends and tourist come like everyday to view the magnificent sunset. Tanjung Aru name is taken from the Casuarinas or Aru Trees. The main attraction is always the 2nd beach as it has food stalls serving local food and drinks that open till late at night. You can get some coconut and sugarcane juice, chicken or beef satay and steamed peanuts and corn. I lived in this area during my teen years so I do know that locals divided the beach to 3 sections. The 1st beach, 2nd beach and 3rd beach.
