Tusan Beach is a newfound paradise yet to see any development like street-lighting, tar-sealed road and others making the long ride just to witness the Blue Tears actually quite interesting.Unlike Miri’s popular beaches such as Tanjong Lobang and Luak Esplanade which attract hundreds of visitors during weekends and public holidays, Tusan Beach is harder to reach. Moreover, it remains untouched which I guess is good.The unpolluted ocean waters also allow for finer views, and walking along the beach at the edge of the tide can create the most remarkable footprints you’ll ever make, hence the craze amongst the locals.
