Have you seen too much gray in your life—bricks and cement from the flooring, walls, and ceiling? Why not unplug and relax in all of this natural green splendor, abounding in fresh air and wildlife?

There are many exciting forests and beaches to begin with, but the national parks make a naturalist's visit to Malaysia enjoyable.

The flora and fauna are among the most uncommon, and if you truly love nature, you should see them at least once in your lifetime, and you will want to return again and again.

If these beautiful beauties are your cup of tea, you will find a number of appealing spots, each with its own charm, including a significant number of beaches and islands that await you.

For those who enjoy nature, Taman Negara Malaysia has some of the most stunning areas waiting to be found.


5 Most Beautiful Malaysia National Parks

1. Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park (Sabah)

Tunku Abdul Rahman (TAC) National Park is located off the coast of Sabah and has five islands: Pulau Sulug, Pulau Gaya, Pulau Mamutik, and Pulau Sapi. This marine national park is a popular tourist site located only a 15 to 20-minute boat trip from Kota Kinabalu.

Pulau Gaya is the largest of the islands, with magnificent beach resorts such as Gaya Island Resort, Gayana Eco Resort, and Bunga Raya Resort. This island is well-known for its famous Police Bay beach, which spans 400 metres of crystal-clear water.

Pulau Manukan, the second-largest island, is the most popular, with long expanses of lovely beaches and coral reefs perfect for diving, swimming, and snorkeling. Pulau Mamutik (the smallest island) and Pulau Sapi are the other two islands ideal for snorkelers and scuba divers.

If you prefer a quieter setting, consider staying on Pulau Sulug, which is more secluded and underdeveloped. The island still boasts beautiful beaches, although they are less populated and have fewer facilities than neighboring islands.

Aside from diving and snorkeling, you may also go kayaking, BBQing, sailing, and do other water sports. While traveling through the jungle, you may come across intriguing wildlife such as monkeys, wild boar, several snake species, hornbills, and monitor lizards.

There are three caves to explore, and they are so huge that you will need to stay overnight at their hostel or chalets to properly appreciate the incredible site.

The Great Cave is where you can witness residents collecting birds' nests high in the cave walls, which were created by swiftlets. Explore an unlit Moon Cave to see the magnificent rocks and their weathering effects. Finally, examine the drawings of human figures on the wall and the other artifacts in Painted Cave.

Best of all, at the evening sunset, you may witness the 'changing of guards', when hundreds of swiftlets return to the cave to rest while bats fly out into the forest to feed.
