How to get from Singapore to Komodo Island
Most visitors fly to Tawau airport or come by bus, minivan or taxi from Sabah’s northern towns of Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Sukau and Lahad Datu. There are frequent flights (relatively inexpensive) from Kuala Lumpur to Tawau (2.45 hrs) and from Kota Kinabalu Airport to Tawau (50 minutes). The most convenient airline for traveling to Sipadan via Kuala Lumpur or Kota Bahru would be Airasia.
Tawau arrival flights:
- Malaysia Airlines, 07.30-08.15 from KKIA (MH2121)
- Air Asia, 07.00-09.50 from KL (AK5744)
- Air Asia, 07.20-08.10 from KK (AK6122)

Once you arrive in Tawau, you will continue by land transfer to the port town of Semporna (1.30 hours).
From Semporna, you will continue on the same day by boat (check the boat schedules) to your accommodation on Kapalai Island (45-60 minutes).
