Sapi Island, Kota Kinabalu
Sapi island is another member of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. Just like the other islands, the only transportation is by boat. I liked this island more than Manukan as it was less crowded. We have seen giant lizards taking mud baths and we enjoyed the beach a lot. There is a trekking path around the island and you can get closer to the nature. For a silent and relaxed day, I would suggest Sapi island.
Come over to pamper your self under the sun.... the water is crystal clear . Have a chit chat with your loved ones under one of the shaddy trees... or while lying on its pearly white sands.... you can get here by purchasing boat ticket at the Jesselton Point and you can pick up to go to one Island or the Island hopping packages(Tunku Abdul Rahman Park)....
I didnt manage to go to any of the manukan, sapi or tiga island.
It needs a minimum of 8 person for the boat to go to any of these islands. By the time I reached the jetty, it was 2 o'clock in the afternoon. The person at the counter told me, there hasnt a person bought the boat ticket yet since 12 o'clock, so it may take me a few hours to wait for 8 persons.
So I give up and go to another island- Gaya.
The round trip boat fare for going to any of the island is RM14 and the last boat is at 5:30pm.
Also another "must visit" island located at Tunku Abdul Rahman Park. Sapi Island good for snorkelling, a lot of coral can be tru clear water around the island.
