“Fun, but crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Lots of tourists go to Sapi Island. However there is good snorkeling, especially if you venture a little further from the shore.

“Island Hopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

The beach is very good. Good for swimming and snorkelling. There is a large variety of fish of different sizes and colours just near the beach. However, the set lunch provided for RM 60 per head was just not worth it. The choice of food is limited as also the quantity. Might be better to just go there for morning outing and return to KK town for lunch.

“Windy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Enjoyed the snorkling and eventually parasailing. Wind, however, too strong for banana boat. Nice little island, good buffet available, other facilities adequate and exciting boat ride to and from KK.

“Crystal clear water, small island but no coral”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Love the white and sandy beach. Nice little islands. It is a bit crowded. Due to weather changes and irresponsible rubbish throwing activities, I did not see any coral. Nice place to relax.
