Mantanani island snorkeling is suitable for leisure water sport activities around the beach area. Whilst snorkeling, you can explore what is hidden beneath the sea around Mantanani Island with confidence. Here’s a short description about Mantanani Island.

“Mantanani Islands is a group of three isolated islands that boast of crystal clear blue waters filled with a myriad of marine life and white sandy beaches fringed by coconut palm trees, making it an excellent destination for snorkeling, scuba diving or island hopping. One of the main reasons that Mantanani Islands is popular for local and tourists alike is because of its picturesque scenery, cool breezes and serene environment. The view of Mount Kinabalu also seems a lot prettier in Mantanani.

After a whole day of diving, snorkeling or kayaking, sit back and feast your eyes on the gorgeous layers of orange hues penetrating the clouds as the sun sets. In the morning, nothing beats sitting on the beach with your legs touching the sea, watching the sun rising as a gentle breeze caresses your skin and ruffles your hair. Be spellbound also by the magnificent view of Mount Kinabalu veiled in chiffon-like clouds and morning mist.”
