“The most perfect spot”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

If you only have time to visit be island, make it Manukan Island ! easily accessible by speed boat from Jesselton Jetty....all the tour desks offer similar prices to get out there...the boat ride itself is worth every cent ! ...When you arrive on the island, you pay an entry fee for all the Parks....so if u visit 3 islands in one day, you only pay 10 Rgt once. You can buy cool drinks and food on the island. There is a great stretch of beach by the jetty with lots of shade and picnic tables. The coral is great, the fish surrounding the jetty unreal....A must see visit.

“Nice for snorkeling, parasailing, etc”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Great for water sports, only that sea walking (under water motor cycle with a bubble around the head) & fish feeding is too costly @ RM250/pax

“Locals' favorite”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Could be the longest island among the few offered within the Marine Park. It's also probably with the best facilities. For snorkeling, most fish can be found at the jetty; bring along some bread.

“bad system”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

island good, clear sea filled with plenty of fish and a walk to sunset point. boat arrangements good on way out but appalling on way back, who goes on what boat no one seemed to know, easy to organise but they failed. take a trip to thailand to see how it is done....
