Taman Laut Tunku Abdul Rahman, Kota Kinabalu

Is a park off the coast of the island of Borneo in Malaysia made up of five islands.
The 5 islands is Gaya, Manukan, Sapi, Sulug and Mamutik. All islands are very popular among tourists from Kota Kinabalu, due to their close proximity to the city.

How to Get To the Island…

Travel to the Tunku Abdul Rahman(TAR) Marine Park is easy as hourly speedboat rides can be caught at the Jesselton Point Ferry Terminal in the northern end of Kota Kinabalu, along Jalan Fuad Stephens. Once inside the terminal, pick from one of the tour boat companies who will all call out for your attention.

Boats start at 7:30am and last return departs at 4pm.

Boats depart every hour to the island of your choice, with earliest departure at 7:30AM and last departure at 4:30PM. The last return boats are at 5PM. You can choose to spend as little as an hour on one island, or all day, or hop in between islands depending on how many trips you purchase at the terminal. The trip takes 15-20 minutes depending on the island. For unscheduled trips, you can charter a boat starting at about RM200 (though you may be able to bargain it down).
When buying the ticket you specify what time you want to be picked up. Allow some spare time in case the boat is delayed by bad weather or unreliable driver (they are mostly reliable).

Only buy tickets from the ferry terminal counters and avoid any unauthorised cowboys.
The islands are very popular among tourists on every day of the week, and among locals on weekends. The further the island is that you visit the less amenities on the island and also the more secluded, although all are busy during the day and beaches can be crowded. It is possible to stay on the islands as well to enjoy more quiet beaches in the morning hours, although this is somewhat expensive.
