3D 2N Mantanani Island

Mantanani is a group of 3 isolated islands northwest of Kota Belud, Sabah, Borneo. About an hour's drive from the state capital of Kota Kinabalu. Although only approximately an hour's boat ride by speedboat from the mainland, the islands are a reminder of an earlier and simpler place and time. Time slows down here amidst the crystal clear blue waters lapping on white sandy beaches.
Visited Mantanani Island a few weeks ago with family. We have a great day and enjoy it so much even though we got a bit tan  skin from the sun burn. Luckily not bad. My kids were really enjoying swimming in the sea and playing with the sand, collecting shells is also one of their favorite. We were staying at Mari Mari backpacker lodge.

Just wanna share a few photos of our time at Mantanani Island.

 Last day at the Island. Check out time at 9:00AM, and after that we have to wait for a few hours for the boat to bring us to the main land.
While waiting continue swimming and enjoying the scenery.

Arrived home at 6:00PM and we were so tired.
