The Bako National Park covers 2,742 hectares of a rugged sand stone peninsula to the east of the Bako River near Kuching. Millions of years of erosion have created a coastline of steep cliffs, rocky headlands and stretches of white, sandy bays. Wave erosion at the base of the cliffs has carved many of the rocks into fantastically shaped sea arches and seastacks. Park vegetation includes beach forest, cliff vegetation, mangrove swamp, mixed dipterocarp, kerangas pole forest and padang scrub. Nearly every plant in Borneo is visible here. Animal highlights include the rare proboscis monkey, silver-leaf monkeys, long-tailed macaques and monitor lizards.
