Kota Kinabalu Wetland Centre is of the only remains of mangrove forest that once existed extensively along the coastal region of Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Previously known as Likas Swamp or Likas Mangrove and later Kota Kinabalu City Bird Sanctuary, the Centre came foremost out of 20 wetlands selected by the Sabah Wetlands Inventory Committee in 1986.The Centre is an important refuge and feeding ground for many species of resident birds, as well as several migratory bird species from Northern Asia. In addition, it is a breeding ground for marine life protected by the Fishery Department of Sabah.Apart from providing shelter and food for both resident and migratory species of wildlife, wetlands also prevent salt build-up in surrounding freshwater supplies, stabilising sedimentation, storing nutrients and removing toxins.
Kota Kinabalu Wetland Centre is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Kota Kinabalu Edition.

  • Nothing much to do here, the entrance is not well maintained, it's like an abandon places, the leafs was not picked up, the building not really nice, the washroom is not clean, the bowl is clogged. I don't know what the foreign visitors think about this place. The walkaways are just average, the huts not really maintained, the information board along the walkaways are in dire condition. There's a lot need to improve, until then I will not recommend my friends to go here.
  • Could be improved more
  • Nice place for teenagers to visit and to experience our mother nature⛅🌲
  • Nothing much to see...
  • Closed today.

Where to stay in Kota Kinabalu

In the area of Sepanggar you'll find the main set of hotels, ranging from simple and mid-priced, to the more luxurious with good sea views. Move away from the coast for more space and privacy in resort-style hotels, which offer a range of facilities and comfortable, sometimes quirky rooms and apartments. Farther out still, you'll find backpacker motels, giving easy access to the surrounding natural attractions that, after all, are the primary reason for being here.
