Pulau Sapi,a gem ,smallest island amongst five islands of Tengku Abdul Rahman Marine Park facing the city of Kota Kinabalu.An ideal get away from the hustle and buzzle of city life.Crystal clear water and pure white sandy beaches makes this beautiful picturestic island a perfect place to picnic,unwind ,relax and snorkel. A short experience boat ride from Jesselton Point passing by the biggest island Pulau Gaya.with local wooden fishing village settlements on stilts and a five star Pulau Gayana Resort situated on the other side.Frequent day boat trips are available to all islands from Jesselton Point harbour port.Bring along food and drinks on your day trips to the islands and the last boat pick up is around 5pm

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.

Sapi Island is good for swimming and water sports. We had parasailing here — while it was fun, it was a bit scary too since the staffs didn’t orient us and just told us to go. The barbecue / BBQ buffet was filling, since we had like almost 10 dishes. Groups eating the buffet lunch will be given one table each to put the things on while swimming.
