Also known as the Kuching Water Park among locals, the man-made attraction is likely the best of its kind in Borneo island.
It is the biggest water park in Sarawak, and it is popular among locals since it opened its doors.

The water park is built on a 35-acre land, split into three major areas; the Water Park entrance, the Hornbill Island, the Salak Beach & Wave pool and the Santubong Tower, all of which surrounding an untouched patch of mangrove forest.
