See the water off Tusan Beach light up with ‘Blue Tears’ on a 5-hour tour from Miri that explores Borneo’s remarkable bioluminescence. Walk along a white, sandy beach as the sun sets over the ocean, and watch for the glowing lights as darkness falls. This 5-hour ‘Blue Tears’ tour includes pickup and drop-off at Miri hotels.
  • 5-hour Blue Tears tour from Miri
  • Chance to see Borneo's bioluminescence
  • Walk on the beach at sunset
  • Travel by climate controlled vehicle
  • Includes pickup and drop-off at Miri hotels
Meet a driver at your Miri hotel for 4pm departure, then make the hour-long trip to Tusan Beach in a climate-controlled minivan or coach. Upon arrival at the beach, you’ll be free to take a walk along the sand—keep your eyes out, as it’s common to spot fossils and seashells on this stretch of coast.
When it starts to get dark, watch the water for the glowing blue dots that are the first sign of the ‘Blue Tears’ phenomenon. The bioluminescence is entirely natural and cannot be guaranteed, but a sighting is a truly remarkable experience.
Following your time at Tusan Beach, begin the return trip to Miri, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

While my tour guide was excellent, I am disappointed with the false advertising for this tour. My tour guide of more than 10 years only saw the Blue Tears once when he stayed overnight with a group for a few days. Therefore, it is not possible to see Blue Tears from 4 - 9 pm when it was still low tide. Furthermore, it is not a common occurrence, more like maybe a few times a year if you are fortunate. It makes me wonder if Viator even verified this tour before selling it. I will seriously think twice before I book any Viator tour in the future.
