This beach is also very close to the Air Asia airport. This is one of the nicest spots to find out why Sabah is famous for its sunsets. Watch the sun disappear between small islands, and cast magical colours over the South China Sea.
This is about 45 minutes drive from Kota Kinabalu, but definitely worth the visit to see these amazing, beautiful creatures that are sadly endangered. See orphaned, baby orangutans feeding and playing in the trees, and learn more about their natural habitat and rehabilitation.
