Mengalum Island

Mengalum Island is located 56km North-West of Kota Kinabalu. This pristine tropical island paradise is surrounded with white sandy beaches, crystal clear water and extensive corals that is teeming with marine life. This picturesque not crowded island is still barely untouched and is a perfect sanctuary from hectic city life.

Mengalum Island has long been associated with voyaging of Ferdinand Magellan in Asian waters during 16th century. The link is tied to a large metal anchor located in the south- western corner of the island near the shoreline.
