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!

Here's a great roadtrip we did: http://offthewhitemonkeyroad.com/malaysia/north-of-kota-kinabalu/ Lots of beaches to tent on for free, and a great trail.

The surroundings of Tip of Borneo are amazing. It's a place where you can wander about without encountering the ubiquitous tour groups. Locals are friendly, especially the Rungus. Most beaches are virtually empty, but beware of rip currents on the most exposed ones. My advice is to go with your own wheels, exploring with a driver it's expensive, just use... More

If you are in KK the 3.5h trip out to the tip is well worth your time. We were there on a somewhat cloudy day. We arrived around 16 to the tip and stayed until dark. We couldn't see much of the actual sunset but the colour show in the clouds after the sunset were beautiful. Don't eat at the... More

The beautiful scenery makes you wonder what the first people who got to the tip where thinking? How the Philippines is just around the corner... We drove up from KK on a motorbike, took us 3 1/2 hours and the tip was a beautiful end point. Grabbed a meal and a beer at the very end of the road and... More
