Sunsets, Kota Kinabalu
If you go to Pulau Manukan, and as I said in a previous tip, the snorkelling is disappointing, the 'must do' thing is a walk to Sunset Point.
The walk is about 1.5 km in length and starts from the office/entry point to the island. It is on a concrete path that is steep in parts but, once past the accommodation blocks, takes you through peaceful jungle where you can take in the sounds of the jungle animals and spot an array of insects and lizards.
There is a small covered pavilion when you reach Sunset Point, but the trees and foliage have thrived and block out any view. Not to worry - just scamper down the sandy track to the beach which you will probably have all to yourself. There are great views across the water and rock pools to explore.
It is a beautiful spot to get away from the 'busy-ness' of the rest of the island.
This is actually not a must see place, but a great place to unwind after all those hectic activities!
Karambunai is a breathtaking resort, situated along the South China Sea and is quite private.
The sunset in this area is simply beautiful!
I like this roundabout with the fish. You can spend an easy evening here, waiting for sunset, drink beer, observing the locals life/ activities on sea. After the day turned dark, walk a short distance to Filipino market for your dinner.
Be reminded that from the 'fish' to filipino market, you need to pass through the central market which is not a good experience due to all sorts of smell from the market.
Take a walk along the seaside at the end of the day to enjoy the beautiful sunset. You may also sitting on the food stall, sipping your favourite juice and enjoy the view here.
