Enjoy a day on Sapi Island, one of five islands in a protected marine park off the coast of Borneo. Just a 20-minute boat ride from Kota Kinabalu, the island offers clean, white sands and clear waters. The main attraction here remains the wildlife: hike inland to see big monitor lizards and wild boars, and snorkel through the water to admire the coral and colorful fish in a diverse marine environment. Try out a range of activities, including island-to-island zipline and banana boating, and then relax in one of the restaurants. A visit to Sapi Island represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Kota Kinabalu travel planner to plot your vacation.
