I did a day trip to this Island while in Kota Kinabalu. I suggest getting to the ferry point early to miss all the crowds!
The island was very beautiful and I loved the palm trees! The beaches were great and not too busy and the snorkelling was ok. I loved that you had the white sandy beaches on the one side and then the beautiful green scenery behind you. The shower and bathroom facilities were great and there are a few restaurants and a bar you can enjoy while you are there too. They have a seafood BBQ/buffet there for lunch time, we just missed it but it looked amazing and if you do miss it there is a restaurant next door with very good food as well.
It was great to get away from the city for a day and the ferry ride is only about 20 minutes, very convenient!
It's a great place to park your towel and relax while soaking up some sunshine :)

Very clear water, recommended to come early to this island. I took the first trip of boat, at 8:30 am. Snorkel while there's not too many people here, and you will get the best view of marine life in the sea!

Very crowded and little concern for nature which is a worry. A lot of rubbish in the water, which is such a shame as these are beautiful islands. On the plus side we did see quite a lot of lovely fish & for children's first experience of snorkelling, this was fine.

I can see improvements. The corals are slowly recovering. I only saw one small patch of live coral. Lots of fishes but not may live corals.
