Abstract

There are four sites in Pulau Sibu that have geological heritage value and potential to be geosite namely Pantai Tanjung Musoh, Pantai Tanjung Semanggar, Pantai Berkembar (Twin Beach) and Tanjung Keramat. Pantai Tanjung Musoh and Pantai Tanjung Semanggar have various pyroclastic rocks and lava outcrop and can be part of type location for Sedili Formation. Pantai Berkembar (Twin Beach) and Tanjung Keramat have morphology from erosion and deposition processes such as tombolo, sea arch and sea stack. All these sites are tourist attraction for activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling or picnic. Geological conservation and geotourism concepts need to be applied to ensure both conservation and development could work hand in hand.
