Borneo Weather in March

March has decreased rainfall and is an excellent time to travel to Borneo, especially Sabah, with  still relatively low visitor numbers. Traditionally March is one of the driest months in Sabah, so is excellent for the northern beaches such as Gaya Island, Lankayan Island and the beaches of Kota Kinabalu, as well as Sipidan.

In the western state of Sarawak, the rain is also decreasing with the monthly rainfall averaging at 360mm (compared to 155mm in Sabah) so a visit is worth thinking about. Sarawak is generally a much wetter area than Sabah.

March is the start of the whale season and is an excellent time to snorkel and dive in search of whale sharks – always near the top of any marine wildlife enthusiast ‘must see’ list. Lankayan Island is a prime location for spotting the gigantic whale sharks, and for diving in general as its home to a huge array of colourful fauna and exciting ship wrecks just begging to be explored.
