About Mamutik Island
Mamutik Island is the smallest out of all five islands of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park (TAR Marine Park). The island is referred to as the city island because it is located near to the Kota Kinabalu city in which visitors can see the sight of the city that is separated by 3 kilometres away from the sea. The distance between the land and sea shows that it requires a very short boat trip to Mamutik.
This small island offers lovely beaches and beautiful coral reefs ready to be explored. Mamutik Island has fewer activities going on, so there are less tourists that come here. Despite not having many activities like what Sapi Island and Manukan Island have, Mamutik develops similar colourful marine life. This less-crowded island is an ideal getaway for those who seek privacy.
