Our second day in Kota Kinabalu was dedicated to spending time on the beach. From our lodge, we walked towards Kota Kinabalu’s Jesselton Point jetty where we booked a tour from one of the many tour operators in the area and got a pretty good deal including stops at two islands (Manukan and Mamutik), snorkeling gears, and a parasailing package (!!! – more on a separate entry).

 

 

After a short 15-minute boat ride, we arrived at our first destination for the day – Manukan Island. We were instantly taken by the gorgeous view of trees, sand, water, fishes, and well… people in bikinis. Haha! 🙂

 

 

We proceeded to pay the conservation fee in order to gain access to the island. There’s a lot to do in the island – from simply lazing under the sun to trying out scuba-doo (an underwater scooter ride). Us? We availed of their parasailing package! 🙂 We hurriedly looked for the boatman to take us parasailing and were the first batch to go up flying that day.

After almost an hour, we went back to shore and put on our snorkeling gears. There were a lot of fishes that day since the water was very calm. They especially were clustered near the boat deck since that’s where the tourists throw the feeds.

After being in the water for quite a while, we found a spot under the trees and ate our lunch. The view while eating was spectacular.

 

 

Stay tuned for more island hopping adventures in Kota Kinabalu. 🙂
