It might not be as famous as Pulau Gaya out of Kota Kinabalu, but Manukan Island is tiny yet gorgeous! Crystal clear water, millions of sea fishes and close touch of tropical climate - not far from the city jetty, an easy 25-mins boat ride brings you to this unwind nature! The striking moment is when the boat arriving into the deck, probably 150 meters lining out of the white sandy beach, we would see thousands of tropical fishes swimming 20 meters beneath, well, "jump into the sea!" - spending few nights on the island could be romantically back to basic if luxurious amenities are not in demand. Short, sandals, sun and silent-reflection - elements needed at Manukan!
