1.Pulau Muara Besar Bridge

  Pulau Muara Besar Bridge is a dual-carriageway bridge which connects Pulau Muara Besar, an island on Brunei Bay, with the mainland of Brunei via Serasa in Brunei-Muara District. The bridge is 2,680 metres (8,790 feet) long and 23 metres (75 feet) wide. The construction began in 2015 and completed in May 2018; it was undertaken by China Harbour Engineering Company at a cost of B$260 million or US$204 million. The bridge is part of the road infrastructure that will serve the petrochemical refinery plant on the island, which is currently under construction, and is a Chinese foreign direct investment. At present, access to the bridge is restricted to authorised personnels of the project.

 

2.Meragang Beach

  The beach is quite famous among the locals, although the nature in the coastal zone is almost wild, from the outside it seems absolutely untouched. At the same time, the clean sandy territory of Meragang Beach, light clouds and a little breeze turn a beach holiday into a fairy tale. Amazingly beautiful sunsets, a quiet, secluded vacation and a large number of turtles (there is also a center for their breeding) annually attract a lot of tourists to the beach.

 

3.Pelumpong Spit

Tanjong Pelumpong or the Pelumpong Spit in English is the easternmost point in the Brunei-Muara district of Brunei. Despite its name, it is now an island due to the artificially constructed 50m-wide, 10m-deep Muara cut, which separated the spit from the mainland to provide access to Muara Port.
