Abstrak: Terdapat empat tapak di Pulau Sibu yang bernilai warisan dan berpotensi dijadikan geotapak iaitu Pantai Tanjung Musoh, Pantai Tanjung Semanggar, Pantai Berkembar (Twin Beach) dan Tanjung Keramat. Pantai Tanjung Musoh dan Pantai Tanjung Semanggar mempunyai singkapan pelbagai batuan piroklas dan lava serta boleh dijadikan sebahagian daripada lokaliti tip bagi Formasi Sedili. Pantai Berkembar dan Tanjung Keramat mempunyai morfologi yang terhasil dari proses hakisan dan pengendapan seperti tombolo, gerbang laut dan turus laut. Kesemua tapak tersebut menjadi tumpuan pelancong samada untuk aktiviti skuba, snorkel atau berkelah. Konsep geologi pemuliharaan dan geopelancongan perlu diterapkan bagi memastikan kedua-dua pemuliharan dan pembangunan selari.

 

Geological heritage values of several features and sites of Pulau Sibu, Mersing, Johor

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.
