Mamutik Island, Kota Kinabalu

(2.8/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Take a trip to Mamutik Island, one of five islands in a marine park set just off the mainland. Despite being the smallest of the landmasses in the park, the island offers plentiful sandy beaches and lots of barbecue pits, picnic shelters, and tables. Dive into the surrounding waters to see the protected marine life, with attractive formations of coral and many colorful fish. Do watch out for sea urchins, however: lots of the spiky critters live around the coral close to the beach, so bring some flip-flops.

  • Beautiful island. Not crowded and perfect for having a 1day gateway from the city. Sea is bit more rockier than on other islands but can still swim and enjoy the light blue water. As on all the island...  more »
  • Mamutik是海洋公園裡面最小人最少的島, 如果想要遠離人群, 此島為首選! 背對島的右側海裡, 礁岩較多, 要小心割傷, 島上還有蜥蜴會跑來跑去喔!  more »
  • 建议考虑在岛上住上一夜会比较好,因为如果时间短,看鱼都看不够,所以需要穿保护好自己的潜水衣服,防止晒伤同时穿上潜水鞋,尽量不要因为意外受伤,只有做好准备工作,一切就会非常美妙,所以建议提前准备必要的衣服、防晒霜、药物。  more »
