Photo: Sunrise at Desaru

We were in Desaru, with fiancé’s colleagues and spent a night at Lotus Desaru Beach Resort.

Having noticed sunset direction on arrival, we decided to wake up early for the sunset by the beach and followed by breakfast. After patiently waiting for half an hour, we (including others) were rewarded with a lovely sight.


Gradual rising of the sun, with calming waves and gentle breeze, it was quite the relaxing spot :)

And the interesting bit, was the sand, which I found oddly blackish.
