It is a beautiful place but depressing to see the damaging effect humans have had on nature. Plastic bags and bottles float about in the sea, and saw many people chuck cigarette butts into the water. The coral is damaged beyond belief and boat anchors were thrown into the water above coral reefs with no regard for the marine life below. For a marine park there seems to be shockingly little efforts made by the government to conserve its beauty. The park is overcrowded with boats, with at least 10 boats stopped at each tiny island at the same time (don't understand why they all have to take the same route?), which completely ruins the experience. At the end of the day we felt embarrassed to have contributed to the harmful impact and wished we had researched a bit more. Please avoid until efforts are made to conserve this precious area.

We stopped at this island for a hike to the top of the mountain for the view of bay. Unfortunately, I was watching my youngest so we didn't make it to the top, but the my boys and wife made it to the top. The view from top is gorgeous. Just be aware that the hike up is kind of challenging for those who don't regularly exercise. Plus, there are a lot of tourists who don't climb regularly, so making it up requires both physical abilities and the ability to dodge other hikers.

Was privileged to spend a few days at anchor in the lagoon. Sadly though the place is a floating plastic tip. Even travelling by dinghy the outboard would frequently get caught up in the stuff. Each morning we’d wake up surrounded by floating plastic bottles. This could be such a beautiful spot but sadly I can’t recommend it. It needs the National Park staff to clean up the water, ban single use water bottles and force the day trip boats to take all their clients rubbish home.

the islands off semporna, sabah are beautiful in its own way. more effort need to be done to protect and maintain the floating debris along this coastal area. all the boats need to stop halfway to check their outboards each time
