Muara is a town in the Brunei and Muara district, Brunei. It contains the country’s only deep-water port. Muara is the Malay word for Estuary. Muara Town or Pekan Muara is located in Mukim Serasa and lies on the easternmost tip of West Brunei. It lends its name to the district which it is in, the Brunei-Muara district. To the North is the South China Sea, to the south the Brunei Bay and across the bay, the Pulau Muara Besar. To the east, across a man-made channel is the remains of Tanjung Pelumpong (Cape Pelumpong), now an island.
To the west is the rest of the Brunei-Muara district and Serasa lies to the south-west of Muara. Before the 1900s, the village of Muara was inhabited by a small group of Malay fisherman. Part of the deepwater port of Muara is occupied by two Royal Dutch Shell petroleum facilities, Brunei Shell Marketing and Brunei Shell Petroleum. The main attraction of Pekan Muara is the Muara Beach along with South China Sea.
