Trip Planner: Asia / Malaysia / Sabah / West Coast Division / Kota Kinabalu District / Kota Kinabalu / Manukan Island
Take a trip to Manukan Island, located in the country's first marine national park.

Head to the southern coastline for white sand beaches, where you can venture into the coral reefs just offshore. Get active with scuba diving, parasailing, and banana boating (chalets around the island's coast rent out equipment). A few restaurants serve an array of local specialities with sea views.

Manukan Island reviews
Really enjoyed the beautiful beach at Manukan. Snorkelling from the beach. Lots of fishes. Worth the 15min boatride. They have changing facilities, lockers, restaurant. Afternoon well spent.

Manukan is the most popular island with Kota Kinabalu residents. Manukan has some good stretches of beaches on the southern coastline. The best beach is on the eastern tip of the island.

A very beautiful island though! You can make a lot of activities here too. Best if you go on sunny day (of course) to enjoy the view. Snorkeling here is perfect for beginner. There's a lot of fish to see even the water is shallow. Enjoyed my time here 👍🏻
a very beautiful island. a lot of places to snorkel. recommended to go during non-peak season to avoid a crowded snorkeling space. very clear water a lot of fishes. we saw sharks too chasing after little fishes. the island also has clean toilets and hotels. the sea water here is warm and cosy. can spend all day with sunscreen on.
Excellent beach view with superb nature with refreshing freshness of air.such a cool & beautiful place to enjoy the scenery with multiple enjoyable activities to hang around.guys wat r u waiting for,plz cum over to feel the nature👌
This was an amazing activity. We loved exploring the islands and doing the water sports activity. Sea Walking was especially fantastic and we did see lot of fishes, though water wasn't as clean as one would expect. Still, it was worth every penny.
Off to Manukan Island. Beautiful blue and clear sea of green. My first attempt at snorkeling. I thought snorkeling was an expensive hurdly, but I got my life jacket,goggles, and snorkeling and here you go ! That what it feels like ❤ so tropical, with rainbow cloud. In the clear sea, I swam with some fish and became obsessed with my son. It such a wonderful experience. 🏝
