Waves at Karambunai: North of Kota Kinabalu

I brought my family to Karambunai 3 months after I climbed Mount Kinabalu for the first time. We stayed at Nexus Resort. It was my second time to Sabah.

It is worth mentioning because the ocean waves of Karambunai are big and powerful, yet warm, friendly and safe (pushing us toward the shore). I was trying to find appropriate words to describe the experience playing with the waves at Karambunai beach. And I think I would say "this warm, powerful, sloshing continuous waves of Karambunai is a warm and gentle giant."

These photos at the beach of Nexus resort at Karambunai, Sabah, should give you a feel of how big the waves are. Click the photos to see full screen.

It should be approximately 3 meter to 4 meter height.





But the powerful waves seem to be safe as it kept pushing us toward a specific place of the beach.Click the photos to see them in full screen (or full size photo) in order to have a feel of the magnificent ocean waves.
