Berhala Island located in Sandakan has a strong prominent history, which had become a quarantine camp for labourer from China and the Philippines during World War II.
Berhala strong attraction is actually the high cliff at one end of the island and a beautiful beach next to it. It is actually a big island with a fisherman village can be found on that island. Even though it is not being commercialised yet as a tourism destination, it is easy to get there, just hire local fisherman boat from the Sandakan Central Market which would only cost a few RM.
Bear in mind, there is no accommodation on this island and the beach or the island, in general, isn’t well managed.
