I visited Sapi to do the Coral Flyer, but was glad I wasn't there too long. Although it's beautiful, it's PACKED with tourists. There was probably little hope of seeing anything very exciting while snorkelling because there were so many people there. The jetty is...More

Sapi Island was a huge let down. We visited for a few hours before heading on to Manukan Island and this was the worst of the two islands. We only visited as we were coerced by our boat driver. It's a shame too as it...More

I am totally confused. It supposed to be a National marine park territory, and one of best islands around KK to snorkel. But upon arrival we found out that in order to protect the reef 90% of the territory is closed to swimming and snorkeling....More

I’ve been to this island several times. It used to be very relaxing. Now it is crowded with tourists so it is a little hectic.
