The Tip of Borneo is located in kudat District and one of the most popular attractions in sabah. Would recommend all to visit if interested. Its take us almost more than 3hours from the airport to arrive. Please be careful when travelling the access road through. The beautiful crimson sunset and the sound of the wave. The view are amazing. I just widh they were cleaning a lot of litter. #sabah
Gong is the most important idiophone in tradisional music of sabah State. Gong is usually made of brass or bronze it produces muffled sound of a deep tone when it's thick and broad ring was hit by a stick. You can see various type of Gong here and you can purchase souvenir. There are a few giant Gong for us to take a photo. Do drop by to support them by buying those. Either you can hang them as deco in your house or give it away as a gift. Entrance fee RM10 a bit pricey. #sabah #travel

We went here last month during our road trip to Kudat. Kindly search Pantai Badarag, Sikuati in Google maps/Waze for this location.
This is a private ownership land but it is open to public (Free entrance fee for diners, otherwise RM5/pax would be charged). There is a natural rock-wall formation that is accessible through the open-air food court via newly made wood walk-way and people like to take picture with the wall as the backdrop. Very windy in the morning and fresh.
Be advise that this location is far from the nearest town, and the food court can be a little short-handed. The current stocking of food is irregular since they just reopened after a 2 long years MCO/Covid-19 and many businesses are still not operating at full capacity.
I cannot find the access to the beach, but I was at the Food court and the hill landing overseeing the beach and the ocean. Nice for a quick stop before leaving to KK. The place is still new and may have new amenities in the future. Please support local business at this Pandemic time.
On the coast is a beautiful place to be. The Tip of Borneo is located in Kudat, where the South China Sea and the Sulu Sea meet.
Approximately 3 hours drive from Kota Kinabalu town to reach this destination. The scenery at Tanjung Simpang Mengayau is delightful with the long white sandy beach and mesmerizing blue waters, so put this as a destination to visit when in Kudat.
Whenever we visit to Kudat surely will bring my kid to enjoy the beauty of the beach at Tanjung Simpang Mengayau. No doubt here is the best place to catch a glimpse of sunrise and sunset. With its strong wind and sound of waves crashing on the naturally formed rocks, one can find peace and tranquility here.
