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

The nearby beach on the South China Sea, is clean and nice but the water is cooler than the Sulu sea around the corner.

My family visited this place in March. The view from the Tip of Borneo is fantastic! Beautiful view of the sea, and colorful rocks formations. Below the tip, one can enjoy the white sand beaches. It is best to enjoy the whole journey from Kota Kinabalu to the Tip of Borneo and Kudat by driving ( own or rent a... More

I been there about 4 hours. It was really breathtaking. I saw the sunset from there and it was really beautiful. However, the road you had to take was quite bumpy if you're from Kota Kinabalu. But, if you're from kudat you can take alternative road which was less bumpy.

A beautifull and relaxed place to be! There are a couple of places to stay like: tommy's and tip top, but for the backpacker still a bit expensive. We bought a tent and put it on the beach. The view is amazing and there is nobody else. No costs for accomodation and we could use the WiFi of tommy's. We... More

We made an overnight road trip to Kudat from KK. I am so glad we did because I felt that we will be extremely exhausted if we make a day trip (at least 3 hours each way) because of the road conditions and if you really want to chill out. It was better that what I expected! We were there... More

We never expect we could come this far all the way from Keningau. The journey was really exhausting, but yet, breath taking when we sees the Tip of Borneo just in front of us. You will realize the air that you breath will be a bit different.. Imagine 2 seas (South China Sea and Sulu Sea) meet up.. Just spectacular!
