"Situated in Bintulu Division (about 30km from Bintulu Town) the national park provides recreational ground for the people within the central region of Sarawak. It has one of the most beautiful coastal areas in Malaysia with miles of unspoiled white and golden sand and rocky beaches facing the South China Sea.

First gazetted on 1 December 1976 and published to public on 20 April 1978 with and areas of 7,064 hectares of virgin forest, starting from Sungai Likau in the south and as far as 30km stretch to Sungai Similajau to the north. Another 1,932 hectares of areas was extended to the park on 17 February 2000 this made the total areas to 8,996 hectares. Even though it?s a small area of strip land running from North-South direction, approximately 30km, but it is rich in flora and fauna that provided nature lovers with rich experience and activities."
