Nestled in the south-east coast of Sabah is Tawau—the third largest town in Sabah after Kota Kinabalu and Sandakan. Being surrounded by the ocean, this fast-developing town is famous for its fresh, succulent and cheap seafood. It is also the largest agro-tourism destination in the state with attractions such as Balung Eco Resort, Tawau Hills Park and Teck Guan Cocoa Museum to name a few.
Love the sun, sea and sand? Book a return flight to Tawau and drive down to Semporna to explore some of the best islands in Sabah. Diving enthusiasts will be amazed by the awe-inspiring underwater world of Mabul, Pom Pom, Mataking, Kapalai and the legendary Sipadan Island.
