Lying to the east of Peninsular Malaysia is the island of Borneo. On the northwest side of this huge island are the two East Malaysian states of Sarawak and Sabah, with the independent state of Brunei nestled between them.
The remainder of the island is Indonesian Kalimantan. Sarawak is home to many indigenous hill tribes still living in traditional stilted houses on the riversides – who were still headhunting as recently as during WWII. Sabah is the more mountainous of the two states, and boasts Mount Kinabalu, at 4,100 metres the highest mountain in Southeast Asia.Read more
The Discover Malaysia by Sea! Sail Malaysia Cruising Guide 2017 by Sazli Kamal Basha and Patrick Southall is an extensive culmination of anchorage information. Their Sarawak and Sabah chapters include many personal favourites recommended from past Sail Malaysia participants.
We mention only a handful of useful locations from Kuching, running northeast to Kota Kinabalu, in this relatively new cruising destination. With the development of more marinas, marine national parks and the Malaysian Tourism Board’s support, we expect many more cruising yachts exploring this amazing coastline.
