The Sea...and the Mountain..

Came back from my holiday. It was amazing. An experience of a lifetime. The beaches are beautiful and Mount Kinabalu is just breathtakingly gorgeous.

The jetty is sunken in sea water in the evening.


Crystal clear water.


The amazing beaches.


A perfect location for snorkeling.


The stairs down to the beaches from our chalet.


Friendly fishes that eat from your hand.


And of course......Mount Kinabalu....

Sunrise on top of the world.


Above all the clouds.


Candy in the sky.


The long journey down the peak.



The famous Low's Peak.


The scary route down....it was too dark to see on the way up.


I made it to the top of the world!

Beautiful photos! What a wonderful place for a holiday!

Wow, your photographs are just breath-taling - absolutely stunning!

I love how you called the clouds sky candy! I've been at the top of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado and have experienced truly having my head in the clouds. It's the most incredible experience!

I'll bet the Spice Cats & woofie miss you terribly though, and want you home soon.

Hey where in KK is this beach?

Just Sharlene and My Spice Cats said...

The photos are taken in Manukan and Sapi Island. Manukan Island is about 20 mins boat ride from KK town. Even in the swallow water, you get to see a lot of friendly fishes and live corals.
