Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park is the most popular island resort destination in Sabah, by virtue of its proximity at sea to KK City, the primary tourist gateway to explore North Borneo. The islands that compose the marine park are highly visible from the city's elevated structures, tall buildings, hill slopes and Waterfront
along the coast. Visitors can travel by speedboat chartered from operators at Jesselton Point
or Sutera Harbour Resort
, opting for one of four choices or an island-hopping package that jumps between two and three islands; some tour packages provided by hotels and agencies include a buffet lunch. Hotel accommodation is restricted to Manukan and Pulau Gaya.
