Berambang Island

 

Despite being a stone’s throw from the city centre, Berambang is an island unknown even to many locals! An island which is full with myths and legends that had been passed down from generation to generation. It even feels like a different country, as motorcycles and bicycles are predominant here, and not cars! A daytrip promises idyllic walks along countryside roads, a hill trek which presents you with sweeping vistas, historic disused coal mines, dramatic rock formations – with the legendary stories, and a showcase of Brunei’s hardy kerangas forests. The highlight of course, the summit along the hill trek! Upon descending, head for a fishing village a few minutes away, on the banks of a river channel which is also the border with Malaysia.
