Welcome to Beaufort Division
This shield-shaped peninsula, popping out from Sabah's southwestern coast, is a marshy plain marked with curling rivers and fringed by golden sand. Visitors with tight travel schedules should consider doing a wildlife river cruise at Weston or Klias if they don't have time to reach Sungai Kinabatangan. Yes, the Kinabatangan is better, but packs of proboscis monkeys can still be spotted here and it's only a half-day trip from KK or Tempurung. The latter has one of Borneo's loveliest beaches and is a good jumping-off point for visiting the former site of Survivor on Pulau Tiga. For something more adrenalin packed, book in KK a white-water rafting trip on Sungai Padas and catch Borneo's most scenic railway stretch en route from Beaufort.
