Mantanani Island | Travel to Malaysia - Sabah | Malaysian Borneo | White Sandy Beaches
The only place in Sabah to see the Mantanani Scops Owls (Otus Mantananensis). Also good for seeing other birds that usually nest on the island because of the relatively lack of natural terrestrial predators.
Mantanani Islands are a group of three isolated islands located northwest of Kota Belud, about an hour’s drive from the state capital of Sabah, Kota Kinabalu. These islands are approximately 45 minutes boat ride by speedboat from the mainland Kuala Abai Jetty. The island, shaped-like knife, has a beach that stretches up to 2.500 metres. The fact, that this thin island has never been commercialized, secures its hidden secrets....
The island promises the most diverse marine life with visibility up to 40 metres. Many species of rays flutter around like blue spotted ray and marbled sting ray amongst large schools of fish.
Sepanggar Island - An island hideaway a mere 10 minutes boat ride from Kota Kinabalu City.
An idyllic island sets with hills of lush primary rainforest fronted by white sandy beaches. With a spectacular views of Gaya Bay and KK City. The blue sea beckons you a few steps away.
Take a walk along the white sandy beach, trek up the hills and be mesmerised by the vista, the scents and sounds of the rainforest. Or simply bask in the sun on the beach, dozing to the sound of the lapping waves, and in the tranquility of an island where few have tread.
