The Tip of Borneo, also known as Tanjung Simpang Mengayau, is the northernmost point of Borneo and lies 140km northwest of Kota Kinabalu. It is accessible from Kota Kinabalu via Kudat, and getting there from Kota Kinabalu takes approximately three hours by bus and taxi. The actual tip is a rocky promontory, separating the South China Sea from the Sulu sea. The closest city is Kudat which has 68000 inhabitants. Next to the headland there is a spherical monument set up in July 2004. Despite its remoteness the Tip of Borneo does attract quite a few tourists, most of them Malaysian. There are a number of resorts and homestays in the area. Adjacent to the Tip of Borneo is Pantai Kalampunian, a nice 3km long beach with white coral sand and clean seawater.
