tip of borneo
The Tip of Borneo is located in the Kudat district of Sabah. One of the most popular tourist attraction in Sabah. Visitors call it an unspoiled attraction due to its remoteness.
What makes Tip of Borneo so popular is because it is the meeting point between the South China Sea and the Sulu Sea! This actually reminds me of the tip of New Zealand’s North Island – Cape Reinga, where both oceans, Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean, collide.
Though far, the scenery was absolutely beautiful and worth the long drive.
Things To Do At Tip Of Borneo:
1. buy some local produce on the way
2. Take beautiful photographs at the tip
It was low tide at the rocky outcrop. With the no-entry zone in place, we ignored the sign and went down nonetheless. It was the same with everyone else there. Of course, you need to be aware of weather changes as it can be really sunny one second and heavy downpour the next! The cliffs do look pretty majestic where we came down from! To catch low tide, make sure you go in the morning and not late in the evenings!
3. Take a photograph at the flagpole and globe monument
The road up to the monument and flagpole is well-paved and easy to walk. Other than that, it also offers an unsurpassable view of the ocean. If you didn’t take a photo at the monument, it means you’ve not been to Tip of Borneo!
4. Swing or lay in one of the many hammocks near the beach
Near the Tip of Borneo is Simpang Mengayau beach, facing the carpark. Here, you will find hammocks tied to the trees. This pristine beach is praised for its white sandy beach and clear blue water. Be prepared to spend a good few hours here if you’re looking for a place to wind down! Most importantly, the place is not crowded at all!
