Kelly Bay (龙尾湾)
Explore the Wonders of Sabah Malaysia
Borneo Kellybays is located at Kampung Laya-Laya Tuaran, It is just only a 40-minutes leisure drive from Kota Kinabalu to the private jetty, then a uniquely built ferry which is just like in a “Floating Pondok” ferries across the mangrove river and accompanying by the creaking sounds of insects. Borneo Kellybays, the Borneo’s Mystical Paradise is located within a mangrove forest with a beach that stretches 8 km long overlooking the South China Sea and yet to be discovered by the local Sabahans. The Mangrove Swamp during low tide becomes even more fascinating with the appearance of hundreds of colorful fiddler crabs and mud skippers. The busy activities of the fiddler crabs which include burrowing holes, searching for food, sand moving, fighting, territory fights and mating during low tide and moving its bigger claw when high tide sets in are interesting and yet amusing to observe. Big monitor lizards plying the Mangrove swamps would laze at KellyBays river bank daily while waiting for their lunch. A unique double opportunity for visitors to experience life in the mangrove forest and river while at the same time enjoy the sea breeze and sun bathe at the beach. Borneo Kellybays is an ideal getaway for families, associations, schools and corporate outings and even overnight camping with the necessary amenities provided. There is also a stage built at the beach with palm leaf-covered roof for cultural performance or any private activities.
