Nature at its best!

You get a breath taking view at this place. If you are lucky, you get a beautiful view of the sun rise as well.

It took us more than 3.5 hours drive from Kota Kinabalu to the tip of Borneo, but the trip is worth every effort in driving. Nice scenery with crystal clear water. Too bad we did not stay overnight to enjoy the beach. The place offer chalets for tourist who like to stay overnight.

When you stay in this area it is nice to see this landmark. Also the view is nice, but not very special. We saw some nice birds on our way to this place.

3 hours drive from KK with very challenging road It was raining while we on the way there. We're worried the sun will not show up. We got lucky, thanks God for pampering us with this beautiful sunset. It's so worth it!

We took a lot of pics within an hour before heading back, and promised ourselves for another encore in near future. Best to spend a night... More

This place is quite deep into the interior, but very accessible via car. We stayed at Kudat town (way more options for accommodation, food etc. Hence more practical for families with small kids) and drove here. Beautiful white sandy beach and excellent view of the ocean at the tip of Borneo. The tide was low so we could walk/ climb... More
