snorkeling at Manukan Island, Sabah

yehlo! this is miss ann tan posing in one of the chalet at Manukan island.
There are five island in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park and you have to pay for the conservation fees before you enter it (plus the boat fee, rental fee for the snorkeling device and even the life jacket)
so no money, don't venture yar?

i'm staying somewhere near the jetty point, so it only took about a 15minutes walk to it. (the sun can kill you even though its just a mere distance)
Lifejacket plus snorkeling item cost around Rm15 each
boat fare is about Rm25 i guess each
 conservation fee Rm10 each

this is atcualy my look after i had snorkel, bathe and change into clean clothes.
the sea water totally destroyed my hair until now! my hair become very very dry and frizzy, i can't use a comb to comb trough it anymore!
argh! T^T

owkay, so here's me looking like i had conquer the world ~

the beach~~
me posing with the peace sign. check out my dad swimming with his leg up at the side! haha, anyway, i want to venture out of the border because i saw more fishes there. i saw a few swimmer out there too, just as long as they don't pass the big round balls (at the far end) it'll be fine.
but dad said it was really too deep to venture out there, so we just stick near the white border.

father and daughter~
so, yup, i catches a few glimpse of the fishes, but mainly just the same fishes all over and over again. 
at first i had a hard time getting use with the snorkeling thing. it's my second time snorkeling, the first time was when i was about 8years old or 10 i think.
so, no surprise i atcually gulp a few salty water and even had the salt burnt my nose (i seep some down through my nose)

the boat trip~ took about 5-7 minutes for us to get to the island.
a kind lady gave me sunblock to apply on myself since i haven't prepare anything about beaches before i plan this trip.

struggling to fix the thing, couldn't figure out the whole thing. haha

one final picture~
Manukan island is quite nice! beautiful! i didn't know Malaysia had such beautiful beach! you can choose five beaches just nearby! so just hop on and hop off, its up to you guys!

  23. Oh my God, this is heaven! I love all the pictures, they are pretty and wonderful. I’ve always wanted to go for a beach trip. The colour of the beach, the view, they are just beautiful. Manukan Island is definitely on my list to visit. Snorkelling seems to be fun. I can see that you’re really enjoying your trip which makes me more excited for my trip to Sabah end of this year if there is no other plan. Besides, it’s a great time for bonding with family. A vacation is one of the best ways to spent quality times with family and getting closer with our family. :)
