Lovely place to visit to chill. Climbing down the small cliff to the rock promontory can be quite dicey so good shoes are needed. Swimming strictly prohibited due to undercurrents.

We stayed in Merrimas Villa Resort. It's just a walking distance to the Tip of Borneo. The room was comfortable enough for me and my family. There are a couple of other resorts nearby. Hope this helps.

Hi, the only way to get to Tip of Borneo if by taxi. There is no public bus going there only to kudat town. Anyway, if you planning to stay there you can ask the hotel operator to arrange for transportation.
