Jesselton Port, KK

Kota Kinabalu has so many cool places to hang out. By the beach (my all-time favourite), by some local bars, by some local family eateries, the list just goes on and on.

Just lately I discovered a new place to hang out - and it's especially relaxing and gorgeous at night. It's the Jesselton Point. The main function of this port is to connect the boats, ferries to all the islands including Labuan. You can get your tickets from Jesselton Point as the tour operators operate from about 6.30am - 5.00pm.


Quiet, and very near to the big Suria Mall, traffic going down this area is not too crazy either, helps too that the parking spots are easier to find as compared to the bars right smack in the city along Gaya Street and parking spots are major factors for me. You can park right behind The English Tea House or Cock & Bull. There are parking spaces (both paid and free) for you to grab. 

In the morning it's busy with beach goers parading their bikinwears, sunhats - ready to boat to their favourite islands. At night, it is laidback and gorgeous, with speedboats as the setting and splashing of waters as background noise.

Should you stay nearby Suria Mall, maybe at Eden Hotel, Gaya Centre Hotel or even Capitol or Jesselton Hotel, please make it a point to hang out, have some drinks or even catch some bites at the Jesselton Point. It's quite nice :)

Go to Mamutik Island and Sapi Island via Jesselton Port
