Full description
Begin your full-day snorkeling trip with an early morning hotel pick-up from Kota Kinabalu to the jetty by car, from where you will board a boat to Mengalum Island, an about one-hour cruise, during which you can admire the great ocean view. Mengalum is a true hidden gem boasting powder-white sand that slopes gently into a stunning shade of turquoise waters. Savor a welcome drink upon arrival and receive a quick safety briefing, before proceeding with the snorkeling activity.

Enjoy two snorkeling trips exploring the amazing submarine life. Mengalum is known to be abundant in groupers, snappers, mackerels and other reef fishes such as clown and butterfly fish.

Spend some free time on the island at your leisure and stroll along the white sandy beach, go for a swim or just relax and sunbathe. Around noon, have a tasty buffet lunch at a sundeck restaurant, after which you will have some more time to discover the island and its surrounding on your own. In the afternoon, head back to Kota Kinabalu's jetty and be transferred to your hotel, where you will arrive at 4:15 PM.
