This spot is a slice of heaven for beach lovers, where palm-trees concealing cheeky macaques fringe soft, white sand. The tropical fish are incredible which makes for fantastic diving and snorkeling excursions (note: if you plan on snorkelling, it’s cheaper to buy equipment in Kota Kinabalu than renting it on Manukan Island.
