We very much enjoyed our visit to the tip of Borneo as it was a beautiful ride to the place, a lovely outdoor experience and free of charge. The views were amazing and the whole area clean and well kept, even the beaches were free of pollution. The gardens surrounding the walk to the tip make the 'picture' complete.

I'd tip say Tip of Borneo is a geographically strategic location to be with the view of both South China Sea and Sulu Sea. I love the turquoise blue sea and the really really soft cool sand. Relatively easy to get here. 4-5hr drive from the town. Road condition from KK town to Kudat is good; however road starting from... More

The Tip of Borneo is the northernmost point of Borneo Island which contains Brunei, part of Malaysia and Indonesia. It's three countries in one island! Facing the horizon, the South China Sea is on the left, and the Sulu Sea to the right. Typical activities include enjoying the sunrise and sunset. It is dangerous to swim at the Tip of... More

It's good for photoshoot, quick visit and watching sunset. The problem is, the place is dirty including the tip itself. I was sad and hope it will get clean up. Even if you think this place is not attractive, please don't make it worst and if you think this place is beautiful, why you polluted it?

Heard a lot of this place, finally got a chance to go! We went in the morning around 7, as everyone was suggesting, either early morning or late evening (towards sunset) will be the best timing to go. It wasn't full of tourist or anything when we were there, you can easily park your car and walk down the stairs... More

Whilst doing my research on Borneo beaches I stumbled on Kudat: remote, still untouched beaches (whilst the Kudat town is endearing, there is not much to see or do). Tip of Borneo meets Sulu and South China seas. To the right of the Tip - China sea - rocky blustery beaches; to the left - miles of sunbleached beaches: a... More
