Beautiful Beach

This beach is beautiful. It is always empty as the locals rarely go to the beach. It is worth going.

Malaysia has big problems. And it starts with a lack of care or interest in disposing of waste and rubbish in the appropriate manner. Labuan is a good example of this. With beautiful beach's that are first class when clean, it's beach's are being destroyed and looking like garbage wastelands whenever the tides come in and the rubbish is there... More

Since Labuan is an island, it is surrounded by beaches and sea. I loved this and can never get enough of it. It is recommended to rent a cr while you are here, you will not get lost as its within an island. Also pls ensure you have sunblock with you to avoid sunburn.

Went snorkeling- and it was amazing. The corals are huge since it hasn't been explored commercially. The fishes are shy:- mostly since their only encounter with humans are the fishermen. However, it was a treat to hv the whole snorkeling area all to your self. Our guides are friendly and alert of our safety without being intrusive. The whole experience... More

there was nothing much happening when I was there. Maybe this was because of the month Ramadan. I have to see it in another time window to give an honest feed back of the place.

Labuan is a quiet island that promises a quiet weekend away. Its duty-free status allows visitors to indulge in items such as chocolates and alcohol at tax free rates, while the seafood offered here is also excellent. The Chimney still proves to be a mystery, while a bit of hiking off the Chimney trail would get you up on a... More

Went to the Beaches several times over a month's stay, and only say people on the Beach once. December had nothing to do with it, due to the year round tropical weather. If you want a public beach all to yourself, you got it!

I just visited Labuan to see the wonderful memorial to the Australian troops who died on the Death March in Borneo and where the Australians took the surrender of the Japanese in Borneo. We must honour these troops who died for us. Please if you visit Kot Kinabula think of Labuan 3,500 Australians buried here including 2 Victoria Cross Winners
