Brunei Bay, on the north-west coast of Borneo, is boarded on three sides by mangroves, rainforests and mountains. It opens to the west onto the South China Sea. Brunei is a safe haven for wildlife, rainforest and reefs. Brunei is also a safe haven for wildlife lovers, adventure travellers, eco-tourism, wilderness travellers, divers, sailors and exploring. Luxury hotels, jungle chalets, traditional longhouses and campsites cater to all tastes and budgets. The Ulu Temburong National Park draws thousands of visitors, scientists and school students each year.
WHERE IT IS
The sheltered waters of Brunei Bay adjoin the Malaysian territories of Sabah, Sarawak & Labuan, and Brunei. The present Sultan of Brunei heads the longest serving family monarchy in the world, and leads a small nation with one of the highest average incomes in Asia.
Brunei is the official entry point to BIMP-EAGA, including Borneo, Sulawesi and the southern Philippines. Mt Kinabalu, Mulu Caves, The Kinabatangan River, Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary, Turtle Island, Pulau Tiga and Sukau are some of the popular destinations. Air, road, ferry, sailing and walking links from Brunei bring overseas visitors to all these attractions.
Brunei Bay was the traditional safe anchorage and gateway to Borneo. With its modern infrastructures underlying traditional lifestyles it is the same today.

The Brunei River enters Brunei Bay, flowing from Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of modern Brunei Darussalam. Surrounded by mangroves fed by the nutrients from rainforest streams, Brunei Bay has always been popular for fishing. The coastal reefs and wrecks are home for underwater wildlife that attracts divers and fishermen.
