This is by no means an exhaustive list. There are plenty more destinations off the coasts of East Malaysia.

So if you've chosen "Other"... tell us which one. Thanks!

Well it was sipadan when you could reliably dive there.

Lankayan was very nice and probably the best accommodation of any dive resort I have seen.

Hi,

I've only ever dived in Sabah (Malaysian Borneo). Best diving I did as a recreational diver was when I sent on holidays to Layang Layang & Sipadan - amazing drop offs. I dived at Sipadan when you could stay on the island and enjoyed seven diving days and many, many dives here. Still a fantastic place - just go when it's a quieter time to increase chances of getting more permits for Sipadan.

I have since moved to Sabah and, based on our experience running diving trips from Kota Kinabalu, would say the three large WW2 wrecks in Usukan Bay are worth a visit too.

Sipadan and Layang Layang are always awesome lots of pelagics and small critters too. These are favourite.
