Got wrong advice. This island has too many people. Water not clear bcoz too many people. Most tourist are from China and Korea. Overcrowded. On the way back we saw that other island has less people.

Not worth being called a national Park. Dirty, full of plastic bottles, garbage,... and only one small piece of beach you can actually sit on. Full of people.

Small beach, limited area for snorkelling. Clear water can see fishes by bare eyes. No sea sport for this island

The island is beautiful, but unfortunately plastics are making an impact on snorkelling activities. Friendly place with a fantastic lunch that only 1 in our group of 15 could finish.

We booked an island hopping tour at Jesselton jetty and it covers lunch and boat transportation. We went to Sulug island, Manukan island and Sapi island. By far, Sapi is cleaner, more relaxing and less crowd. Highly recommended if you like beaches. There’s snorkelling, swimming...More

You can do discovery dive, island hopping, sunbathing, picnic, eat or just walk around the island. It’s really very nice scenery to look around

For the zip line not too sure. Snorkelling gear you can rent on arrival at Sapi Island. There is a ticket kiosk as you get off the boat. I am sure they will be able to advise on zip line tickets. Lockers available too.
