Theres only 2 ways to access this beach.
The resort owns the access to the point, so the only way to access the beach is you would have to be a guest to the resort. Either you get a few buddies to stay in 1 room so its cheaper or you just haggle your way in. If you look like a foreigner it would be easier but if you look like the locals then sorry mate! You can get a car or taxi to take you to the Nexus Karambunai Resort which is about 25 mins away from Kota Kinabalu city.
Another way is get ask the local surfers to hire a boat and it takes about 25 mins boat ride to the point from the main harbour. The boat cost you at least rm300 for a day.
Best time to surf would be when the swells are coming in from the South west.
Very quiet and serene. When the swells ar at least 5ft and above this is one of the best places to surf in Sabah. It can be the equivalent to Balangan in Bali..almost. Unfortunately it doesnt break like that too often.Can get some really nice long rides.
