Northern Coast and Islands
Sipadan Mabul Resort
The resort has excellent cabins with private facilities, ample fresh water, air-conditioning and verandas. There is a good beach, swimming pool, restaurant and a bar beautifully located at the end of the pier – an excellent location from which to watch the sunset.
The diving around Mabul itself is excellent and is particularly renowned for muck diving and a profusion of macro species. However, the main attraction for divers is the world-renowned island of Sipadan with its large population of sea turtles, fabulous coral gardens and large shoals of pelagic fish.
PADI dive school offering video services and PADI dive courses including Nitrox and rebreather diving, restaurant, lounge, bar, private facilities with hot water showers, and veranda.
Highlights include: frogfish, pipefish, fire gobies, mandarin fish, crocodile fish, flamboyant cuttlefish, ghost pipefish, many species of nudibranch, shrimp, sea urchins, crabs and lobsters.
Diving and snorkelling.
Permits for diving on Sipadan are strictly limited and are only allocated to those booking a full dive package. Even then, it is best to book early.

I would like to express my thanks to you for preparing the splendid itinerary, covering my recent trip to Borneo. I achieved every objective set, from reaching the summit of Mount Kinabalu to photographing wild orang-utans, proboscis monkeys and crocodiles, not to mention watching turtles laying their eggs and the hatchlings returning to the sea, plus all the other fascinating wildlife that was observed. The organisation on the ground was seamless and every connection and transfer in a somewhat complex itinerary went like clockwork. Accommodation and cuisine in the various lodges was excellent…superb diving at both Mabul and Sipadan. Once again, thank you – we shall be back.
