The boat ride over from the Sutera harbour is only about 15 minutes, went to the first Island where we bought a package of parasailing, flyfish ride & Jetskis for $75AUD (225RM) we had a great time. We then went to the next Island (cow island I think it is translated too) and we had a great BBQ lunch and spent the afternoon snorkelling with an abundance of fish and marine life - watch those damsel fish though as they are quite territorial and bite!! (not hard though!!) It started pouring with rain by 2pm so our guide called a boat and we were heading back within 15 minutes.

This is a good place to relax and treat your jetlag, or slowly getting back to the civilisation after a week or more in the rainforest. It is however not too great as a destination by itself compared to Sabah's major attractions. Snorkeling is so-so at best, and the beaches need some cleaning up.

There are certainly better places to go diving or snorkeling in Malaysia. Sipadan is fantastic, but pricey, and aside from the great diving there is little else to do. The Perhentian islands, Tioman and Redang on the east coast of the peninsula are also very good, but are closed from mid-October until March due to the monsoon season.

TARP is open year-round, and is just a short 15-minute boat ride from downtown KK. There are several different islands where you can dive or snorkel, and prices are reasonable. Best of all, KK is a fun city to spend time in with a number of wonderful things to experience.

These five islands are very close to the city and are reachable by boat in 15-25 minutes. They all belong to a natural resort so everybody going there must pay an entrance fee, but still they are poorly maintained and full with garbage. There was practically no restaurant or fast food shop open on Manukan island after 4 pm, one could also not buy anything to eat except for potato chips etc.
