General

Experience and explore Sabah’s finest jewels of the seas and help the local Bajau community enhance their livelihood by sharing their unique home and their lifestyle. Throughout the four days and three nights, the travellers would get the chance to indulge in environmentally friendly excursions such as a gentle hike up to Bohey Dulang summit. You would be rewarded with a spectacular view of the surrounding islands and sea. Nature lovers should try to experience this moment at least once.

The local Bajau community, with assistance from individuals who work tirelessly to ensure the area remains pristine and untouched, had constructed a basic homestay accommodation. While it may lack in modern amenities such as hot shower and air-condition, the panoramic view that greets visitors each time they wake is more than make up for it. A range of activities is included in the package such as snorkeling in clear waters, island hopping, and many opportunities for photography, jumping off your homestay right into the water below whenever you feel like it and visits to the local Bajau village.

Spend a few days in a place that is beautiful beyond words, where only the sound of the waves and the gentle swan song of sea birds break the solitude. An adventure for the senses awaits in Selakan.
