The best diving site is the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, close to Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah County. It was named after the country’s first prime minister and covers a surface of 50km². it was declared national park as early as 1974, so its flora, fauna and marine life, protected by the government through Sabah Park, have reached an impressive diversity.

The recent restructuration and the high professionalism of the instructors working here have turned the park in one of the most popular diving sites on the island. All the tourists visiting Kota Kinabalu discover scuba diving and fall in love with it, returning over and over again.

When you want to take a break from diving, you can explore the land, as it includes five gorgeous and welcoming tropical islands: Pulau Sapi, Pulau Mamutik, Pulau Manukan, Pulau Gaya and Pulau Sulug.

There are tens of adventurous trails you can follow and the island is surrounded by tropical waters, sheltering reefs and a fascinating sea life.
