This beach is famous for locals during weekends to unwind with family members and loved one. It’s also good place for water sports activities such as swimming, jet-skiing, surfing and sunbath. Kite flying is common sight here.

One can choose to stay overnight here on low budget hotel nearby. Hyatt Regency Hotel is the most popular choice for a holiday. We parked our car at designed car park area with fees of RM1. Side parking is widely available for free, but good luck for hunting on it.

As history said, the name Lembing was an adoption of the event of spear that fell into Kenau River while the hunters were hunting the deer. Another said the name of Chinese Hakka Lim Ming (林明) translated to Malay.

Sungai Lembing has become a charming town attracting loads of visitors especially on weekends and during holidays. There is Sunday morning market, offering inexpensive goods to the locals and the visitors. It’s a small town with elderly and children. Most youngsters have moved to town for job and better life.

If there is only thing you can related to Sg Lembing is Rainbow Waterfall, you are wrong. There are a lot to tell from my visit to Sg Lembing recently. Although it’s not a complete visit this round, as I missed out few locations here. Hope it can use as guide to plan a trip to this old mining town.
