We went to the Tip of Borneo twice on the same day....first in the morning and next for the sunset. Driving was a breeze from Kudat..........It is advisable to rent a car from Kota Kinabalu and drive to Kudat. The road was good and reasonably maintained. Once the sun was set....we went back to Kudat Town for seafood dinner at... More

The "Tip of Borneo" is not some sort of special rubbish tip, but one of those places to brag about. It's a developed site, at the physical top (tip) of Borneo, about 30km from Kudat, the nearest developed town. It's a "must" to have your photo taken in front of the giant granite ball, clearly labeled as the most northerly... More

Short drive from Kudat town. We saw the sunset from there and it was really beautiful. The nearby Pantai Kalampunian is also great for walk. If you go for a day trip, I recommend to extend to Pantai Kelambu, not far from Tip of Borneo. It is not known by many, and the signboard was kind of old. However, we... More

Has some amazing views and a good amount of history explaining the monument at the tip. Only bad thing is it is a bit difficult to get to without your own transport.

A 3 hour drive from KK, it is a bit out of the way and you really need your own transport but well worth the effort. The sunsets from the Tip are amazing, the beaches are empty with clean white sand and crystal clear water. A great place tow hike away a few days

Travel from Kota Kinabalu to Kudat takes about 3 hours+ (normal speed without traffic). and from Kudat to Tip of Borneo takes about 30mins - 40mins depend on road condition. nothing much for Kudat town beside tip of borneo, a great best to visit and its a must visit place when travel to Kudat.

Love this place, it's beautiful and quiet during the weekdays with very few tourist. A most relaxing location with the breeze blowing to have a good read. It's clean and well kept. The replica of the local attap house could be better maintained for visitors to view

Sunset is the popular time here, but folk drift up all day long. Interesting rock formations (that you can climb down) at the Tip
