Beaches/snorkelling near Sandakan?

Posted by amz155 on 19/3/2011 at 10:23

Are there any good areas to relax on a beach and do some snorkelling near Sandakan?

We wanted to go to Perhentians in September but figure that we may encounter rain and would rather that the R&R part of our honeymoon not get rained out.

I read about Mabul and Sipadan but they seem to prefer divers over non divers and the accommodations seem quite $. Not to mention that I don't think there is a beach there, more suited to divers.

We REALLY want to relax on a beach during our honeymoon but if Perhentians/Tiomans threaten to rain and there's no suitable clean beach on Borneo we may have to pick another destination for late August/September.
