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

The beach leading up to the to the tip of Borneo is very beautiful and chilled out - a great place to stop and take a breather on your travels. Share a cab from Kota Kinabalu very cheaply and stay in one of the few rooms places in this as yet very undeveloped spot. Do be careful of the sea... More

It was a long ride from Kota Kinabalu but worth it. The scenery at the Tip of Borneo was out of this world. Calm serene and lovely. Would like to go there again.

The sight is awesome on the tip. It is super windy on the day of our visit, the winds so strong that you feels like its a possibility being blown away. It is a good spot for viewing sunset and sunrise (if you are stay overnight in the hotel nearby to it) if you are lucky to have a cloudless... More
