Long and scenic Tanjung Batu Coastal road

This is the view of the Tanjung Batu Coastal road as one drives out of Bintulu town. This week the eugenia trees ( Eugenia polyantha) ( seen at the left of this picture) has started to bloom extensively throughout Bintulu . This flowering season may continue for about another week or so. After that the trees will start to bear small black berry-like fruits much sought after by the local birds. It is through these seeds that these trees are propagated and the germination rate is excellent, meaning almost 99%. The central median is planted with the majestic royal palm ( Roystonea regia) interspersed with colourful bougainvillea varieties.
