This was the best snorkelling spot we went to. From Kota Kinabalu, it's about a 2 hour drive. Try to get a tour guide with a smaller van. We ending up in a large bus, which had way too many stops and extended the drive...More

Though it was hard to reach.. I loved to stay in this beach. Snorkeling was fun too...the only thing that I didn't like is...the trash floating around the beach and the dock..People/traveler need to stop throwing away their trash into the water.

Mantanani island is a beautiful island. The water is really clear. If you're visiting it with a tour company, I highly recommend not using Mizume! Their service was terrible... Instead, try using Borneo Eco Tours or Amazing Borneo
