Tip Of Borneo

Tanjung Simpang Mengayau is situated in the northern-most tip of Borneo, the third largest island in the world, after Greenland and New Guinea. It is located in the Kudat Peninsula, about three and a half hours (or 215 kilometres) drive from Kota Kinabalu city.
Simpang Mengayau means 'lingering junction' as it is here that the South China Sea lingers and meets the Sulu Seas flowing from the east . Enjoy the stunning view, sunsets and full moon. The nearby Kalampunian Island lighthouse is a reminder of treacherous coastline and past shipwrecks. On the left is the beautiful beach of Kalampunian.
It's a lovely easy stroll to the flagpole, the globe and the rocky outcrop that forms the "Tip of Borneo".
