Mamutik Island, Kota Kinabalu

3.6
#4 of 16 in Parks in Kota Kinabalu
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.

  • It is one of the busiest island due to its short ferry ride from KK. Several hundred group tours come here so lunch options are specifically for the tourist groups and shores are all busy with snorkel...  more »
  • If you are planning to use the toilet in this island be prepared to vomit just after entering the toilet. The toilet has no water and was so dirty and smelly. Not a best place to take shower.  more »

  • Clear water and white sand. We were there on Tuesday afternoon and the beach was quite crowded. The garbage management on the island is catastrophic and something needs to be done there soon to keep the nature clean. Please be very respectful to the corals and fish too since on the main beach you see a lot of damage done by people stepping on them. There is still a lot to see while snorkeling, fish are colorful and not too shy. Right side of the beach is still quite well preserved and colorful corals can be spotted there.
  • beautiful island .. can’t wait to comeback here
  • Small but beautiful island
  • Wonderful little island very close from Kota Kinabalu.Crystal clear water, white sand and palm trees! The perfect recipe! Lots of fish to spot. They actually swim around you. To get there drive to Jesselton point. From there you can easily book a speed boat to the islands around. Better arrive in Mamutik early before it gets crowded. It's part of the national park.
  • clear water..its mesmerizing..
