Gaya Island (Pulau Gaya) is a sizeable island, just 10 minutes off Kota Kinabalu, and forms part of the Tunku Abdul RahmanNational Park. Pulau Gaya is the largest island in the Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park, closest to Kota Kinabalu and is covered with dense virgin, tropical forest. It has been a forest reserve since 1923. The island has 20 km of hiking trails and two 5 star resorts named Gayana Eco Resort, home to the Marine Ecology Research Centre.
