Jesselton Point Waterfront

Posted at January 7th, 2014 | Categorised in Information


Many people come to Sabah to enjoy its beautiful Islands and famous marine bio-diversity. Some of the well-known spots like Manukan Island, Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park and Gayana Island are not that far away from the Kota Kinabalu city. You just need to get a ride on a speedboat and you’ll be there in less than half an hour.

However, in order to get there, you need to find Jesselton Point Waterfront first. Formerly known as the Kota Kinabalu Ferry Terminal, Jesselton Point Waterfront has become one of the main city attractions in Kota Kinabalu ever since its privatization in February 2006.The place has been upgraded to offer many other services and not limited to boat terminal to the said islands only.

Jesselton Point Waterfront is situated north of downtown Kota Kinabalu, not far from Suria Sabah Shopping Mall. It’s less than 5km from Centre Point Sabah, so an early morning walk at sunrise to the Jesselton Point Waterfront would be an ideal opportunity to see parts of the city along the way. The Waterfront is opened daily from 6am until 2am but note that the ferry and boat terminal only operates until 6pm. Please note that it serves as the only ferry terminal for Labuan-bound passengers as well as the main (and cheapest) boat terminal for the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park and Gayana Island. This quaintly scenic place has an unmistakable historical feel to it — complete with olden days snapshots of Kota Kinabalu city (Jesselton) and vintage red English phone booths.

You can also enjoy casual dining, leisure and retail experiences with its array of alfresco F&B outlets and handicraft stalls. They also have a four-court futsal centre, fishing facilities and its jetty is bookable for social functions—be it dinner parties, fundraising concerts or even weddings.
