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 or sun bathing you can do here.

The islands are beautiful - we hopped across three islands and tried the zipline which was the highlight of the day. A must do while in KK

Friends had recommended this island. They had visited all the islands and told they liked Sapi the most. It is very small but it feels like paradise. Is good for snorkeling. You find the coral and fishes behind the first blue lines. Ask the life guards where to go for snorkeling (that's what I did because initially I couldn't find the good places for snorkeling).

Can’t add much to the previous reviews. Great snorkelling and easy accessibility from KK. Loads of scuba options or just do it yourself

The island only has one small beach which hundreds of tourists and a dive school are packed onto. Snorkling is okay but water is murky from the amount of people swimming in it. We tried to explore the rest of the island but found it was covered in rubbish which was really sad considering its ment to be protected. Makes you wonder what you pay the 20bht conversation fee for. Zip line was good fun but not really worth coming for specially as it's over in 30 seconds.
