DIVING & SNORKELING

The Coral Triangle covers the waters of Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste and Sabah. Sabah is right in the middle of one of the (if not the) most diverse marine environment in the world, with an abundance coral reefs.

 

Just 15 minutes off KK is Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. It consists of 5 islands namely Gaya, Sapi, Mamutik, Manukan and Sulug. They are perfect for diving, snorkeling, beach and water sports activities. There are resorts on Manukan and Gaya where guests can stay to escape the bustling life in the cities and go diving or snorkeling while there. The park has around 50 dive sites that are very popular. Many take their PADI courses here with the comfort of the best choices of everything in KK.

If we take a 45 minutes flight east to Tawau and another 45 minutes drive to the frontier town of Semporna, we get access to Tun Sakaran Marine Park. Or if we have the time and wish to see Sabah by land, then we can drive all the way, stopping for an overnight on the way or just straight in one day. The most popular dive sites are found on Sipadan, Mabul, Mataking and Kapalai. Sipadan is considered one of the top 5 dive sites in the world. About 250 kms north, closer to the city of Sandakan, lies Lankayan Island, another very popular island among visitors.
