Went here for lunch with parents in law. We eat Sayur Nangka, Paru Sambal, Sup Tulang, Sayur Terung, Kari Perut & Sambal Merah. But on that time, we cannot order the famous dish, that is "Ikan Terbang".😅😅😅 This place is very good and suitable if you want to eat with peaceful and calmly. There are many types of Indonesian Dishes... More

The shops here are very touristy with much of the goods from China not Malaysia. There are places to eat and have coffee which are great on a fine day although expensive compared to other places In Kota. Lots of Rubbish around as well as road works.

We used the Harbor more for transport as for leisure, but for a quick snack the food was good and affordable. In general is the water very dirty with a lot of trash, which is not a good place to stay, but for transport it does the purpose!

Broken shower room & toilet doors are not repaired & unlockable. Overall its a disgrace to locals & tourists to see this substandard facilities within the main jetty in kota kinabalu.

We used Jesselton Point to organize a day trip to Gaya, but you can do Labaurn, diving, snorkeling, etc. as well. Food kiosks as well. Worthwhile if you're planning on doing any of this stuff while you're in KK.

Stopped on the way to get our boat, and picked up some decent buns and snacks. Could be cleaner. Wouldn't go if it weren't for the boat.

Day trip to the sea will go to the pier, we found one, the price is not bad, next to the Grandis Hotel, it is convenient, there are car parks, parking fees also about 10RM a day

Where the food and eating area is located they have a paving type of cover on the ground, some pavers had sunk about 10CM into the ground and it caused me to have a serious fall. On returning to the are at a later date the hold was still there and no safety measures taken at all.
