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.

  • It has a bit more going on out of the islands, waters were a bit cloudy and not as easy to find a spot in the shade for our family. Worth a look but Sapi was our favourite.

  • It's was dirty. I saw instant noodles packing plastic floating on the sea. Beach a lot of rubbish and little rock. There are too many people can't feeling enjoying. DON'T COME AGAIN!

  • Went here end of march, if you planning to visit islands you can just go to the counter. The operating hours start from 8am-6pm. Last trip will be at 4pm. Visiting 3 island + safety vest + jetty fee cost RM60. Dont forget to bring mat for picnic & foodies as well. If you planning to do activities, you can look up agent at facebook or just go to the counter for activities, price will be expensive tho but worth it. Dont forget you hat & sunscreen. Be sure not to go during payday & holiday, the island will be really crowded.
  • Lovely white sand beach, way chiller than Sapi Island. Less tourists and clearer water. There're a few options of small restaurants and cafes with picnic tables for a quick lunch.
