Mantanani Island

If you want a memorable vacation but don’t know where to go, you should definitely consider Mantanani Island, a place of wild beauty and peaceful moments.

Not many places can give you serenity and unforgettable experiences like this fantastic place can. This group of three islands is situated in the northwestern part of Kota Belud and about an hour`s boat drive from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah`s capital.

The island prides itself on crystal waters, a calm sea and white beaches surrounded by coconut palm trees, and it is the perfect place for snorkeling, island-hopping, kayaking or scuba diving. The diving conditions are perfect from April all the way until September.

As you plunge into the clear blue water off Mantanani Island, you will be fascinating by coral colonies and exotic marine life. You will admire the neon-colored fish, the blue ring octopus or the little clownfish playing hide and seek under the coral reefs. Be sure to bring your camera, because you will shoot some extraordinary images.

One of the main attractions is the sea cow, a special creature also called “dugong”. This mammal is rather shy and disappears into the deep waters at the sight of the many visitors the island has recently received. But if you are lucky, you will see one.

After an amazing adventure underwater, you are invited to sit back and let yourself be caressed by the gentle sun rays along with a cold cocktail. You can sit on the seawall in the morning with your legs splashing the water and watch the sun rise. You will be also charmed by the spectacular view of Mount Kinabalu amazingly rising from the clouds as a real king of the island.

Don`t waste any more time! Book your vacation with us, and we will make it worthwhile. Get away from city life and visit Mantanani Island, where you can find peace, tranquility and wellness.
