Let me put it this way... if you haven't been to Sipadan, and are considering between Sipadan and LYLY, then Sipadan wins hands down.

If you have been to Sipadan, but wanna experience the thrill of diving for hammerheads, and cannot afford to go to the Galapagos or Red Sea, then LYLY is a good destination  ;D

It very much depends on what you want to see/dive/do.

Lyly is most famous for its hammerhead shark… people pay thousands just praying for a chance to see them. But if you are not so interested in seeing only hammerhead… then perhaps a more diver friendly location is more suitable for you… Sipadan, Manado, Bali, Similan… just to name a few.

These days more likely to see hammers in southern lombok (though diving is apparently very tricky, google magnet dive site).

Did see them in sipadan, only once and poor view but very lucky.

Also saw in png up front and personal and all the diving was awesome, better than sipadan imho, hammers or not. Bloody expensive though.

Was at the Magnet last year, saw 3 hammers on one dive... but yes, conditions were rough... rough surf, lotsa down currents... even on the surface.. our boatman wore a life-vest  :D :D

we are interested in diving at spots where they hv more marine life. not so much of a muck diver kind... but more attracted to see pelagic giants... :P :P :P
