Small fishing boats at Bintulu Riverfront

A common sight at Bintulu is the display of strong colours of fishing boats that are parked by the wharves that line the waterfront of Bintulu's main river,the Kemena. The local fishermen are mainly Melanaus and have been known to be ferocious with the Illanun pirates who were warded off the coast of Bintulu by them in the hey days of piracy sometimes in late 18th century.
