A Day Trip To Pulau Sapi/ Sapi Island Off Kota Kinabalu

Pulau Sapi, or Sapi Island is one of the 5 islands that make up the marine park known as Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, which is located just off the coast of  Kota Kinabalu, the capital city of Sabah.

In local terms, the word ‘Sapi’ means cow and why is it called such, I have no idea. It definitely doesn’t look like a cow if I look at the map of this island (Please comment below if you know the story so I can be enlightened). What I do know is that if you’re looking for island-based fun, you will have to head to an island (which Sabah has many) and the nearest island from my home, is the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park.

Why specifically Sapi Island this time? Well, it was originally a plan with a group of friends to explore a little corner on the island that is not frequented by visitors, but unfortunately we later found out the trail leading to that little corner has being closed to the public.

You know how frustrating it is if you went through above like I did.
