The Tip of Borneo (Sabah, Malaysia)

Borneo is the third largest island in the world, and its northern-most tip is the meeting point of two big oceans, South China Sea and Sulu Sea. The Tip of Borneo is located in Kudat district and one of the most popular attractions in Sabah. The scenery is delightful but you may not know where you stand was used to be a watch-point for pirate invasion hundreds of years ago.

Might be the reason why when we were in the bus, there was a police checkpoint and since we came from the Philippines, they have invited us to go outside. He checked our passport stamped and our immigration permit to stay in KK for quite sometime. You know the feeling  of half of your life gone because of too much nervous? But thanks God, nothing bad happened to us. The Malaysian police asked my name and said that I'm beautiful and we may go now. I didn't know what to say or feel but I am glad we are safe.

Though I don't know exactly the historical background here, I still love the scenic countryside, open sea and sandy beach at the Tip of Borneo. The best thing is – the entry is FREE.

Our frontdesk suggested that the Tip of Borneo was rather untouched and had lots of secluded beaches to explore, only 2-3 hours from KK. Off the tip were a few large islands, only one of which was visited by tourists. It was worthy of exploring.
