Sabah is in many ways a paradise and Kota Kinabalu is no exception. And what is a vacation without a white sandy beach where the sand is unbelievable soft and the water crystal clear?! And even if you are not a swimmer, just to take a walk in the fresh air and feel the sand under your feet is a wonderful feeling. This is exactly what you will experience in Kota Kinabalu and its surroundings; there are so many beaches to choose. Why not take a walk at the long stretch, 6.4 km (4 miles) of white soft sand, Tanjung Aru Beach, or take a boat ride to any of the islands just across the sound from the city. 

And just for your information, the Sabah coastline stretches for 1440 km (9,000 miles) so there are many hidden beach pearls to be explored.
