Kawa Mangrove is Kota Kinabalu's most famous mangrove tourism route. Its beach is also famous for its beautiful sunsets. Visitors can take a day trip through the mangroves, as well as enjoy the sun sinking into the ocean. Look out for the local bekantan monkeys or, once night falls, watch for the fireflies glittering like stars. Kawa Mangrove tourism was only recently developed and, as a result, the natural ecological environment has been maintained relatively well. Fireflies should be in abundance.
