We have been to Miri twice with our 48' Diesel
Duck, Dora Mac. The most recent was from Sept. 11, 09 to Oct. 14, 09. There is water
and electricity on the dock
but no other services close by. You have to walk about a quarter mile (if you know the shortcut) to the marina office. There is a guard at the marina to give you directions and another guard at the entrance which is protected with a cross gate.
The local coastguard use this marina as there base and they seem to be onhand 24/7.
our bicycles the two miles or so into town regularly for lunch or provisioning
. Good fresh fish
market and across the street a very good vegetable market. There were good supplies of fishing
boat type hardware
. One sailboat that had been hit by a barge had it's stainless steel
railings replaced around the bowsprit
Overall I would recommend Miri Marina for a quiet stop or a secure place to leave the boat for travels. It is very well protected from swells by a seawall big enough to have a restaurant and seahorse lighthouse at the end of it. It is a little tricky getting into the first time. Go directly toward the beach keeping the seahorse on your left and as soon as you're clear, turn left 90 degrees into the channel behind the seahorse.
