The reefs are easily accessible and contain some species not usually found on the west coast. Within its emerald depths, divers can see delicate sea fans, staghorn coral and schools of vibrant coral fish.

The best time to visit the islands is between February and April when it is drier and the seas are calm. A rest house is available with two rooms. Visitors are advised to bring their own food and camping equipment. Permission to camp must be obtained from the Ranger-in-charge at the Sabah Parks.


From Kota Kinabalu, drive 140 km south to Kuala Penyu at the Klias Peninsula, then board a boat to the islands. The islands are 18 km away and takes about 45 minutes.
