9. Sunset Music Festival!

With such relaxing beaches and breathtaking sunsets found here in Tanjung Simpang Mengayau, wouldn’t it be more grand if there was live orchestral music to accompany the thundering waves and disappearing light? Well, for several years now, the Sunset Music Festival has been holding a stage here with local and international music performers celebrating life, music and nature with a dramatic radiant Sabah sunset as a backdrop. If you have timed your visit sometime between June and July, you can play at the beach during the day, feast on some seafood, then enjoy an evening of lively entertainment before returning to one of the few resorts nearby to rest.
