Beautiful Day at Manukan Island! :) I SNORKELED for the First Time!

Hey~ It was one beautiful Saturday morning when we were heading to Manukan Island sometime around January.

Relative from Hong Kong was here and the young one would love to visit the beach and she said "AH! THIS IS SABAH MAH!" :D She love beach, love tan as well. :)

- At Sutera Harbour Jetty -

We depart from Sutera Harbour at 8am or 9am, it's been a while since the last visit to Manukan Island. Yea.. It was part of my trip to relax my mind after all things happened. :)

- Spotted Sea Urchins -

- Beautiful Sutera Harbour's Jetty -

Bye for now. :)


We arrived!

Manukan Island is one of the five combination of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park (which consists of the islands of Pulau Gaya, Pulau Sapi, Pulau Manukan, Pulau Sulug and Pulau Mamutik).

I think I won't talk much about Manukan Island, but here you are the pictures that I took at Manukan Island.

- The Chalets -


Although I love to travel around, but the most disappointing part is I don't really know how to swim. :(

Somehow I'm in luck that day, friendly life guards guided us while we went snorkeling.

A little bit of imagination here, I saw sea urchins, I touched sea cucumbers, star fishes. Aww~ It was amazing view down below. Those corals are beautiful!

Snorkeling for the first time gave me hiccups after one hour swim, there's part it was quite tiring when I need to paddle my foot for quite a long time and my foot was hurt for a week or so, all because I didn't do stretching before snorkeling. (haha :D) But anyway, no wonder people love to snorkel. :)

- Photo session -

There's my younger sister in the middle (Chloe), relative from HK and two of the life guards. :) They thought we were tourist and we were just lucky that they offered us their table to settle down.

- The beach -

Well, Sabah has it all, the magnificent view along the beach. :) Non the less, I still love Sapi Island more! :)

Planned for the next island trip, hope it will be great and looking forward. :) Sabahan just blessed to have such beautiful gems here. :)

That's all for this entry!


  1. I went to Manukan a few years ago, after my business trip in Kota Kinabalu. But I couldn't go into the water, as nobody took care of my belongings!
    The marine park management should prepare some lockers for the tourists to store their belongings...
