Pulau Sepanggar is a small island off Kota Kinabalu coast and located between Gaya Island and Sepanggar Bay. To get there you have choices of speed boat or the slow moving small 6-passenger sampan which would be a torture if you are a person who hates waiting
By speed boat, say 75HP outboard engine, you will reach the island in about 25 to 30 minutes time. The island has no electricity but the school is powered by hybrid solar-generator system.

Mt Kinabalu is clearly visible on a good day. This island could be a perfect spot for capturing sunrise shots of Kota Kinabalu and Mt. Kinabalu.
