Great snorkeling

The island is small but ideal for snorkeling and very near to the hotel almost less than 10 minutes away. You have to pay an entry fee though for conservation

Island hopping
Aug 2019 • Couples
We were staying in KK and easily got a boat transfer from the Jessington point to Sapi Island. We chose to just go here instead of doing more than 1 island. It cost around 24 MYR each for the return boat and then 20 MYR each for the conservation fee. It is a nice island but quite busy with tourists and probably isn’t your dream white beach setting. The snorkelling is quite good and there were plenty of fish to see. We went for a walk around the island and saw a few Komodo dragons and we did the zip line from Gaya island to Sapi which was good.
I would still recommend coming here as it is a relaxing beach break from the city and you can easily have your own little space on the beach.

Snorkeling for the first time
Mar 2020 • Solo
As a beginner for snorkeling, I find this place very beautiful. Cleaner and clear water. Unfortunately, there was restriction for snorkeling at few areas. I couldnt get to snorkel much here. I had to wait quite long to use the washroom. Was so crowded and the wash room was very basic. I did banana boat from here I guess. So crazy. It was very scary for me as the wave was so big. Worth it for a beginner level. Looking forward for more.

Great Place to visit with cost of 30 Ringgit inclusive of life jacket, snorkeling gear and boat transfer 2 ways.
Corals are nice but need to snorkel a little bit further you cant see any near the shore.
We snorkel and find lots of colorful fish,corals and a lots of Sea Urchin. Its huge and slightly scary.
Remember to sneak in some bread to attract fish to you or else slightly hard to find one.
View amazing. Restroom and prayer room are provided free use and you can rent a locker for safety or your belonging. You also can try zipline between island for 68 ringgit per pax.

Gorgeous water

Worth visiting the island and doing the world's longest zipline. Next time to you think about visiting Sabah come to Borneo and visit Abdul Rahman National Park. Breathtaking views and crystal clear waters.

Dirty and crowded
Feb 2020 • Solo
Do not bother wasting your time visiting this island unless you wish to be surrounded by plastic, sit on a dirty beach full of tourists. There are alot of jellyfish in the sea which makes it difficult to get into the water too.

Good place but crowded

I have visited this beach as a side trip from my Mt. Kinabalu hike.
I was expecting that I can relax in this beach after the hike but there are lots of people in this beach.
Water is clear though and have many fish.

Zipline is a must
Jan 2020 • Couples
Quite pack with tourist; especially tourists from China & Korean. You can see local too but foreign tourist outnumbered the locals😆!
Awesome experience trying island to island zipline. Buy the ticket at the island, please dont buy the slots at the jesselton jetty as some of them will take advantage on you! Local is RM68 & Foreign is RM86. U will fly from Gaya to Sapi island; a boat will takes u from Sapi to Gaya.

Fab small island
Jan 2020 • Couples
We went with Star Marina and the Island is small but great snorkelling. We saw lots of amazing fish without having to go out to far. It took about 20 minutes in the boat from the Shangri-la hotel.
The island has cafes and toilet and shower facilities and was kept very clean.
There were a lot of people but you could snorkel quite easily. Beautiful island.
