Overview

Mantanani Islands is located in the northwest of Kota Belud and is made up of three isolated islands. It takes approximately 60 minutes by speedboat to reach the islands though this is dependent on sea conditions. Blessed with an abundance of marine life and surrounded by crystal clear waters washing ashore onto white, sandy beaches, the islands are the perfect destination for snorkeling, scuba diving, and even island hopping.

One of Mantanani Islands' main attractions is because of the 'dugong' or the sea cow which is known to reside around the island. Dugong sightings are however, not guaranteed as they are shy animals and will distance themselves if they spot crowds. It should also be known that dugongs are highly endangered and populations are dwindling so luck is very much needed to be able to spot one!
