About Signal Hill Observatory Tower

A walk up to the Signal Hill Observatory Tower unlocks some of the best views in Kota Kinabalu. The open-air lookout resembles a futuristic UFO and commands stunning vistas over the Kota Kinabalu skyline and South China Sea. While the walk is mostly uphill, the path is shaded by lush palms, ferns and trees.

The views from the Signal Hill Observatory Tower are especially beautiful at sunset when the South China Sea and distant islands of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park acquire a golden glow. Visit after dark to see the twinkling city lights.

A small cafe offers drinks, snacks and refreshments if you need to refuel. After visiting the tower, stroll around the upmarket Signal Hill neighbourhood, which is filled with elegant Art Deco mansions.

Getting there

Signal Hill Observatory Tower is a 20-minute walk from Kota Kinabalu’s city centre. The path starts from just behind Hotel Garden on Lorong Dewan. Taxis will also drop you outside the tower. You can also sign up for guided walks led by the Sabah Tourism Board.
