Sematan is a small village at the end of the road which goes from Kuching towards the western end of Sarawak. It lies about 90km northwest of Kuching and is the access point to the Tanjung Datu national park
, which is just a short boat ride away. The Sematan village itself has nothing of interest, but there is a very nice and long beach which starts in the village and extends to the west for several km. Accommodation is available in the Sematan palm beach resort, a cozy three star establishment directly on the beach. The simplest way to reach Sematan is to take a taxi from Kuching (130 RM).
