Experience Traditional Village Life in Sabah


Located at the tip of Sabah, my village started an ecotourism initiative to protect and encourage more turtle nestlings on our stunning white sand beach of Lupa Masa Beach. We operate this ecotourism project with the entire community, and it allows you to experience our Rungus Village life in an immersive way. By participating in our daily community activities, you will directly contribute to our community and the turtle and reef protection programs.

We can take you out fishing or go for a hike that takes you in 3 to 4 hours up to the top of the hill near our village, which has some spectacular views! If you are adventurous, we can even camp on the top too. If not, we can go back to another beach and village and tell you about the use of medicinal plants and our village's history. If you would like to learn more about our traditional handicraft, then the village artisan group would be happy to teach you this during an art workshop.

At night, you will stay in a traditional Rungus Longhouse in the village as the local families in town help prepare a delicious local dinner for you!

This Sabah Village Tour is for two days and one night.

About Me

Hi, my name is Roland and I'm a member of the Lupa Masa Beach community. Here in Sabah, I am running a traditional longhouse to let travelers experience our fascinating local culture. As a carpenter and builder, this traditional-style house finally became a reality when we decided to build it with volunteers' help. Besides this, we also started a Turtle Hatchery program within the Lupa Masa Beach community. We warmly invite you to visit us and become a part of our community!
