What travelers say:

The scenery of Sabah is generally very beautiful. And there are many Chinese people in the local area, there are Chinese signs everywhere, and the taste of eating is also in line with the Chinese habits, that is, I am not used to meat and bone tea. Curry crabs are very delicious.

Additional Information


Mermaid Island (also known as Mantanani Island) is located in the northwest waters of Kuta Maurit Town. The Mermaid Islands are divided into three islands, namely Mantanani Besar Island, Little Mermaid Island (Mantanani Kechil Island) and Lungisan Island. Most tourists live on the Great Mermaid Island. The island has stretches of white sand, simple fishermen, and coconut trees swaying in the wind. The photos you take can be regarded as scenic postcards. About 20 diving spots have been developed on the island, suitable for both beginners and experienced divers. In the vast ocean world, tourists can see many unique underwater creatures. There are now two resorts on the island, one is MariMari, the iconic stilt chalet, and the other resort Bembaran, which is an ordinary chalet, and you can see a beautiful sunset on the MariMari side. The fishermen on the island are warm and simple, very friendly, and you can take pictures with them. Going to the beach all the way to the right, there is a trestle that leads directly to the sea, which is a good place to watch the sunset. The evening entertainment, fireflies, is a major attraction. If you are lucky, you can also see a small creature with blue shimmer on the beach. It is buried in the sand and placed in the palm of your hand like a star. This is the well-known "Blue Tears" on the island. In the morning, you must enjoy the sunrise here, overlooking the mountain opposite, which will be unforgettable for a lifetime.
