The Muara Bay is located at Laya-Laya Village in Tuaran not far from the Kota Kinabalu city. It is located between the ocean and a mangrove forest where the sea meets the river. This pristine beach has managed to establish itself as an amazing location to many tourist activities. However, one of the best reason to visit Muara Bay is that it is less touristy than other places. Visitors will be able to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere on the beach while looking at the beautiful view of the sea. This tour will let you have a memorable experience in Muara Bay.

You will be picked up at 3.30 PM on the day and we will head to the Likas Mosque straight. The Likas Mosque is a mosque with a modern Islamic architectural style and it is one of the iconic attractions in Kota Kinabalu. The mosque has a nickname of “The Floating Mosque because it is surrounded by waters and the mosque looks like it is floating above the water when we look at it. The Likas Mosque is usually one of the destinations to stop by for many visitors when they tour around the city. Its beautiful structure and reflection on the water have made it into an amazing location for photography. There are even couples that take their wedding photography with the mosque as a background. After that, we will depart to Laya-Laya Village in Tuaran from the Likas Mosque.

After around an hour of transfer, we will reach the village. Then, we will ride on a boat at the jetty for a short transfer to the beach at Muara Bay. Upon reaching the beach, light refreshment will be served to keep you energized for the upcoming activities. Next, you will gear up as you prepare for the sunset paddling session. Before you start paddling, our professional guide will conduct a safety briefing to ensure your safety during the activity. You will be kayaking in the area near the beach with a great view of the vast ocean. As you paddle, the sun starts to set gradually in the evening. You will be able to enjoy a unique experience of watching the sunset on a kayak in the middle of the sea.

After the kayaking session, a delicious buffet dinner will be served before the next activity. Once everyone is done with dinner, we will go onboard into a cruise. The cruise will bring us on a ride along the river banks of the river at Muara Bay. As we cruise along the river, you will be able to witness the wonders of nature where fireflies light up the atmosphere on the river banks. The calming experience will certainly be an unforgettable memory for you. After the firefly cruise, we will transfer back to Kota Kinabalu to end our tour and is estimated to arrive around 8.30 PM.
