The beach is very good and quiet, views are very nice. Sunset views can be spectacular.

Quite surreal when you think about where you are in the world when here. You never really think you'll get to an exotic destination such as this. Great views and beach nearby.

It's a nice place to take photo and see sunset. It far tho from Kota Kanabalu, few hour of driving but worth to visit.

An attempt to make a tourist attraction. The view from the tip is great - nice picture opportunity. There is also a monumental "globe of Borneo". Heard from local people there is once a year jazz festival there - must be a great experience.

Breathtaking views near powder sand beaches. A little buggy with black flies near sunrise/sunset but its paradise with a few epic secret turtle beaches and surf spots among the rocks and shoals. A wild place with a few nice hotels and bars.

Stayed at a nice little place on the beach here. The sunset at the tip of borneo was absolutely stunning. Plenty of places to eat or have a beer up there, and there is an ice cream vendor on a bike up there for the kids.

A must visit! From Tip of Borneo, you could observe the white beach while enjoying the strong and fresh wind blowing right into your hair from the South China Sea. The sounds of water hitting the stones made the whole experience simply magical, to say the least as I felt I could stay here forever.

We drove from town to this place - it's a long drive and there aren't any roadmarkers so you have to "know" your way. It's basically one long road along the coast that brings you there, and when you are really near, you will see the signboards. Some parts of the roads are pretty rough but our little car managed....

The Tip of Borneo is a must do experience in Sabah, its long way from Kota Kinabalu so a night or two stay is required, recommend North Borneo Biostation as the place to stay, but you must have own transport to travel around the Tip and you can't get that in Kudat area .. Sunset at the Tip is the... More
