Trip Planner: Malaysia / Sabah / West Coast Division / Kota Kinabalu District / Kota Kinabalu / Manukan Island
Take a trip to Manukan Island, located in the country's first marine national park. Hop on a speedboat from the mainland and in 20 minutes you're there--on a paradisal island offering natural attractions and plenty of activities. Head to the southern coastline for white sand beaches, where you can venture into the coral reefs just offshore. Get active with scuba diving, parasailing, and banana boating (chalets around the island's coast rent out equipment). A few restaurants serve an array of local specialities with sea views. Use our Kota Kinabalu trip itinerary planner to add Manukan Island and other attractions to your Kota Kinabalu vacation plans.

Spent well time there with my besties by shooting a lot of memorable photos. Remember to bring along the power bank in case the phone battery is not enough to support 😆 more »
Beautiful island, cool breeze and best place to go with family and friends 💕 i adore how beautiful the view of this place ~but something that is unpleasant to see, rubbish floating in the sea, how bottle and bags are chocking our sea. 😭 Many people are even unaware that they're littering. The very thought that littering spoils the environment doesn't even cross their minds.
if you are lucky to have fine weather, this place must be amazing! i strongly recommend to stay at the hotel, so youll have great view in the sunset time and morning after and before boat schedule to the main island. remember you need to pay 20, or 10..? not sure, to enter the island. daytime may be a bit crowd and the sea is not clear. in addition, you will see cats everywhere!
