Here are the fact findings about Tanjung Kelayang:
Tanjung Kelayang is a penisula facing to North. The boulder's island placed in East Coast, a white sand bay with several km long. It's actually all white sand bay until Tanjung Tinggi for about 4km distance from Tanjung Kelayang. East coast is a good place from swimming, since the under water surface is also clean white sands. It's also good, if you want to play in a wide bay. East cost is an entry point to Tanjung Kelayang, and here is only white sand bay, not boulders. From there people usually walk along a beach about 300m to North, while you can find group of granite boulders, spreading a long the edge of penisula and also in the sea. One of them is a bird looks island.
The West coast is totally different view. The beach is not as long as East Cost because there are more boulders in this side. The unique view of West coast is 3 small islands, about 300m distance from bay. Combined with boulders that spreading in the sea, the view to those islands event better, especially during sunset. The best place to view West coast panorama is from the top of big granite boulders in the edge of penisula.
The third area that nice to view is from a villa, about 500m distance from Tanjung Kelayang penisula. This place is likes hidden paradise, even though it is all combination of white sand beach and granite boulders like other beaches. However, the panorama is unique than other beaches.
If you are interest to visit small islands in front of Tanjung Kelayang beach, you can rent a fisherman boat that usually many of them parking a long Tanjung Kelayang beach. Since the distance is short, you can arrive in the island by just 10 minutes journey and you can walk along beach surrounding these no inhabitant islands since all islands surrounded by white sands. Don't forget to bring enough drinking water supply, because there are no any water supply in that islands.
In contrary to above nice story, you will find an unfinished resort construction project in centre of Tanjung Kelayang penisula. That project has been abandoned by owner since several years. This is main cause why Tanjung Kelayang has no longer as popular as Tanjung Tinggi even though its panorama better than Tanjung Tinggi.
