Formerly known as the Kota Kinabalu Ferry Terminal, Jesselton Point Waterfront has become one of the main city attractions in Kota Kinabalu ever since its privatization in February 2006.
Situated north of downtown Kota Kinabalu, this quaintly scenic place has an unmistakable historical feel to it—complete with olden days snapshots of Kota Kinabalu city (Jesselton) and vintage red English phone booths. Jesselton Point Waterfront serves as the only ferry terminal for Labuan-bound passengers as well as the main (and cheapest) boat terminal for Tunku Abdul Rahman Park and the resorts at Gaya Island – Gayana Marine Resort, Bunga Raya Island Resort and Gaya Island Resort.
Jesselton Point Waterfront also offers casual dining, leisure and retail experiences with its array of alfresco F&B outlets, handicraft stalls, and a four-court futsal centre.
Other facilities or activities:
Fishing – From 6pm-6am from RM10 per entry (payable at the Suria Futsal Centre).
Jesselton Point Waterfront jetty is also bookable for social functions—be it dinner parties, fund-raising concerts or even weddings.
After a long hard day at work, the Jesselton Point Waterfront is an excellent place to wind down and catch the breathtaking sunset!
