  • A foodcourt besides the beach that offeres variety of stalls with their special food. The most famous one is the ABC gunung kinabalu. With the price of RM25, you can eat up to 6-10 person. Just nice enjoying the Abc on a sunny day by the beach.

  • Food court condition very run down. Not very well maintain. If you don't mind to eat in 'dirty' place please come here. Food price is like an island price. Expensive than KK town. Not recommended

  • Good clean beach. Great place to see the sunset. Lots of tourists come here to see the sunset. There are pubic baths to clean up after a dip in the ocean. Limited eating options unless you like the local fare. Lots of BBQ and Satay. Bring your own booze. No alcohol availanle.

  • Just quick bite here. Local food but more expensive here than KK. Ask for chicken wing. More expensive than Kundasang.

  • Makanan tak sedap.. not valued to eat here. The beach is nice but too bad Human throw the rubbish and pollute the beatiful beach.. pls pls pls Love the nature dont destroy it.
