What people are saying:

Gaya Island is the largest island in the waters of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, about 15 miles from Kota Kinabalu. There are many unspoiled marshes on the coast for strolling, and there are mangrove forests on the island, where you can learn about various animals and plants. In addition, the marine biota in the sea area is rich and the water is clear, making it a good place for snorkeling. Snorkeling here can see Nemo. It takes only ten minutes from the pier to Gaya Island, and the water becomes exceptionally clear when it reaches Gaya Island. There are three hotels on the island. We stayed at Gaya Island Resort, which was the cheapest among the three hotels. The price at that time was equivalent to more than RMB 1,600 per night, but we liked it very much. The hotel’s buffet was rich and delicious, every day There are different activities, such as windsurfing, kayaking, movies, snorkeling, etc. for free. Staying here for a week will not be bored.
