Tourists continue to visit marine park on Pulau Gaya
By Jaswinder Kaur
Holidaymakers are still heading for its sandy beaches, with the most popular being Malahom.
The park occupies a large part of the island and is under the purview of the Sabah Parks Department.
Park assistant manager Thomas Yussop, when contacted, said the incident had no impact on tourist arrivals.
"Visitors are still going to the base camp at Gaya and to Malahom beach. They also continue to visit four other islands nearby.
"We have also not received calls asking if it’s safe to visit Pulau Gaya and the other nearby islands," he said.
