There are three trails marked out for visitors. The trail from Base Camp to Police Beach is 3.25km and will take a few hours at least. For a less strenuous hike, take the trail from Base Camp to Padang Point (1.95 km) is recommend. This trail takes about 45 minutes and can still be quite tough for those who are not that fit.
The great thing about this trail is that you get to see a dipterocarp forest as well as a mangrove forest. Hornbills, monkeys, wild boars and monitor lizards are some of the wildlife that can sometimes be seen while trekking in the jungle.
Not many people come here despite its proximity to Kota Kinabalu. While the other islands get their fair share of visitors, Pulau Gaya has been overlooked despite it being the biggest island in Tunku Abdul Rahman Park. Police Beach, on the northern coast, has one of the nicest beaches and its location on the far side of the island ensures plenty of privacy.
Getting here by boat though costs more because of its distance, this tour simply fit your needs! Combine that with a swim at Pulau Sapi and you get a 2-in-1 deal.
