Malaysia scuba diving destinations

Sipadan is the jewel of the Celebes sea. It is incredibly beautiful and has that Malaysia Sipadan Humpheadrare combination of first-class diving, a first-class dive operation and a first-class resort. Perfect for honeymooners! It is a bit of a trek to get to the Island - you need to fly to either Kota Kinabalu or Tawau.

Try not to spend the night in Sempurna if you can avoid it, and if you can, splash out and stay at Kapalai. You won't regret it. It is such a heavenly place built on stilts and all the diving is nearby. The dive operation is supremely well-organised. You cannot actually sleep on Sipadan but the Kapalai resort is the nearest to the island (all the resorts are not that far and you can even dive Sipadan as a day trip from the mainland).

Make sure you spend at least a week in the Kapalai because you might not be able to go to Sipadan every day if the resort is busy. Their other dive sites are Pygmy-seahorse.jpgreally good too with world class “muck” diving where you can see Pygmy seahorses and Flamboyant cuttlefish if you are lucky and the house reef is not to be missed either with it’s beautiful Mandarin fishes (at dusk)

    Absolute best time to go – October to March.

    Dive sites not to miss – Sipadan island!!!
