Kota Kinabalu (KK) has the good fortune of having five beautiful islands surrounding the city; the five islands consist of Pulau Gaya, Pulau Manukan, Pulau Mamutik, Pulau Sapi, and Pulau Sulug. Tunku Abdul Rahman Park is made up of part of Palau Gaya and the other four islands. With the islands’ proximity to Kota Kinabalu, boat rides to the islands just take about 20 minutes from Jesselton Point, KK main ferry terminal. Day trip to these islands can be easily arranged as there are hourly shuttle boats to and from the islands.
