Sematan is a picturesquare fishing port located about 110km from Kuching and the gateway to Tanjung Datu National Park. The long beach north of the town is a popular weekend getaway for residents of Kuching. Due to the low sloping sand you have to walk out some distance if you want to swim.
There are several chalet developments at Sematan beach, of which the best value is probably Sematan Palm Beach Resort, and the Nomad Sematan Resort.
