Surrender Point, Labuan Island

Monument · Tourist Spot
Visit Surrender Point, an historical site commemorated with simple, small memorial. The place where Japanese forces officially surrendered to Australian Major General George Wootten on September 10, 1945, the memorial marks the location of international importance, while also commemorating the lives lost in the Pacific Theater. Simple information panels tell the story of World War II in the wider arena and detail the grimness and struggle of life on the island during the war. The memorial sits adjacent to the Peace Park, a shared venture between Malaysian and Japanese authorities that's designed to draw the two countries closer together in the modern era.

  • Historical. Peace Park is just next to it. Best to visit around 5-6pm as you can watch sunset at the beach after that. Also, do try the satay there. Price range between RM0.8-RM1.0 + fresh young coconut RM5. The local people there are very warm and welcoming.
  • Truly a quiet and peaceful place.
