Hop over to Mari Mari Sepanggar island.
An island hideaway a mere 10 minutes boat ride from the Kota Kinabalu City.
An idyllic beach resort sets by the hills of primary rainforest fronted by white sandy beaches, and a spectacular view of Gaya Bay and Kota Kinabalu City.
The blue sea beckons you a few steps away. Take a dip, go scuba diving, go snorkeling. Indulge.
Take a walk along the white sandy beach, take the boardwalk up the hill and be mesmerized 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.
Stay the night in a chalet on the hill or by the beach, watch the City lights up in the distance, and the surrounding sea and jungle take on another romantic, mysterious facade, as night falls.
