Ramsey Point is located on a stretch of beach in Labuan where two major historical events took place.
On 24th December 1846, the Sultan of Brunei handed over control of Labuan to the British Crown in a gesture of friendship.
In a brief ceremony, Admiral George Mundy raised the British Empire flag on this beach, formally marking the start of British rule in Labuan.
A hundred years later, this same beach entered the history books once again as it was used as a landing point during World War II.
Led by General Douglas MacArthur, the Allied forces landed here on 10 June 1945 to liberate Labuan and Borneo from the Japanese army occupation (look out for the plaque on the beach commemorating this occasion).
