Plans underway to make Tusan Beach a popular tourist destination

MIRI: The relevant authorities have plans to develop Tusan Beach – well-known for its ‘Blue Tears’ phenomenon – and also other beaches here into popular tourist attractions.

“There are plans by my ministry to develop these beaches here, particularly the one in Tusan. We hope to get it done this year,” disclosed Assistant Minister of Sarawak Tourism, Arts and Culture Datuk Lee Kim Shin when asked by reporters on the latest tourism products to be developed in the city.

He was met during his Chinese New Year open house gathering at his residence here on Saturday.

Adding on, Lee highlighted the need to address the issues of indiscriminate dumping of rubbish as well as the presence of debris such as logs and wood pieces, which make the beach   dirty and not presentable to tourists.

“A proposal has been forwarded to Miri Resident’s Office, which calls for relevant stakeholders to conduct regular beach-cleaning to keep these areas clean and beautiful.”
