Sabah Island-hopping

Set sail on a traditional wooden boat and revel in the tranquility of island life off the northern coast of Sabah. You can explore the massive caves of Balamabangan Island, where the remains of human civilisation date back 20,000 years, or jump on a bike and visit the beaches, villages and jungles of Banggi Island, before trekking to the tree houses of the Dusun people.

There’s plenty of time to chill out or snorkel on pristine reefs with brightly coloured fish – and, if you’re lucky, a dugong – at Maliangin Besar Island, before rounding out the day with a feast of local seafood by the bonfire.


You’ll pay about US$295 for a five-day tour with Sticky Rice Travel.

It’s a laid-back kinda journey.
