  • We were Uber in the evening to see the sun. But because too many people are coming. Traffic is a bit chaotic. Sandy beach is actually not very beautiful, a little bit messy. But it's still acceptable. But because it's not very good every day. only to see some of the sun. If the weather is bad, don't run a trip!

  • We came here, just sat down and watched the sun go down while chatting with each other. I loved the calmness of the place and how there were plenty of people simply appreciating the sunset!  more »
  • One of the most beautiful sunset in Kota Kinabalu. It is also close to the city and not far from the Shangri-La resorts too. Lots of the garbage on the beach and lots of locals looking for a weekend place

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.
