RM200 per person
Morning, pick up from your hotel and transfer to the jetty to take a boat trip to Sepanggar Island. A 10 minutes boat ride from Jesselton Point Jetty will bring you to its white sandy beach, warm turquoise water and colourful reefs.
The sandy beaches are met by thick ancient jungle right off the coast that rises to twin main peaks, as high as 160 meters a.m.s.l. A heaven for nature lovers, it is blessed with the amazing varieties of flora and fauna befitting an untouched tropical rainforest. Here, the islands is yours to explore.
Trek up the rainforest trail to the South Peak (highest peak of the island). Enjoy the panoramic view of Gaya Bay, Likas Bay, Sepanggar Bay, the South China Sea and our next door neighbours, Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park and Kota Kinabalu City. Be humbled by the giants trees, ferns and rattan along the trail. Listen to the bird calls and buzz of the inhabitants of the jungle.
On descent, go for a refreshing dip in the clear blue sea. BBQ Lunch is served. Then go snorkelling or just lay on the beach.
At sunset, join our sunset cruise and watch the sun cast its technicolor rays across the sky as it slowly disappears into the horizon.
Return to the mainland and transfer to your hotel.
