Sabah is remarkably renowned as Malaysia’s best scuba diving paradise. At Sabah, Malaysian Borneo, three scuba diving islands were widely famous because of its world class ambiance and irresistible beauty – namely, the Layang Layang Island, Sipadan, and Mabul Island. Throughout the years, the dive sites of the islands became hot tourist spots which eventually attracted a number of tourists around the world.

Sabah is also gifted with a number of islands which are all equally comparable to the three well-known islands. Lanakayan, which is situated near to Sandakan, is one of the newest discoveries of a stunning diving paradise. There are also awesome treasures at the bottom of the ocean where the Labuan Island, Kudat, and Kota Belud are resting. On the western coastline of Sabah, you can find other fascinating dive sites worth visiting, such as Pulau Tiga, which is featured on the first Survivor Program series, Mantanani Islands, and Tunku Abdul Rahman Park. If you want to include these amazing paradisal islands on your list this holiday, you can inquire the scuba diving operators at Wisma Sabah to avail a diving package.

A number of scuba diving operators are popular in Kota Kinabalu. For interested beginners in diving, Sabah provides a licensed PADI course conducted by experienced instructors. Starters can avail the three-day PADI open water course, and the Dive Master Course which offers a more advance diving experience. With a couple of Malaysian Ringgit, a chance to experience the spectacular diving adventures in Sabah is worth spending.

Selamat malam,
I read about Tabawan island and thought about staying there for maybe 2-3 nights with my friend just for snorkeling, learn about pearl farming and maybe explore the forest a bit. Since we travel on a budget, I was wondering if there is any alternative like camping or homestay in the island?
It would be so nice if you could tell us about the possibilities of getting there from Kundat and sraying on the island. Maybe its aldo possible to just go straight to a neighbor island after Tabawan? (You could maybe drop us when going to a dive?)

We are lookibg forward to your reply,
Kind regards from Sandakan, Franziska
