Malaysia Borneo, Sabah, Sipadan Island 马来西亚婆罗州  沙巴州属西巴丹岛

Pulau Sipadan ('Border Island' in Malay) is an island of outstanding natural beauty.The island is only 12 hectares (30 acres) and is covered by pristine rainforest.

The amazing diversity and abundance of marine life found at Sipadan makes it one of the top world's top diving spots and without doubt the most famous scuba destination in Malaysia.Sipadan island is regularly featured in the world's top 10 dive spots along with other destinations sich as the Galapagos Islands. Scuba dive with the swirling tornado-like formation of Barracudas, the big-eye trevallies, the thousands silver jack fishes, the giant size parrot fishes, the numerous turtles and many others such as mantas, eagle rays, tunas, scalloped hammerhead sharks, whale sharks and 3000 more species of fish.

For environmental reasons this tiny island has now closed its resorts. This means the best way to dive here is by staying in on one of the resorts on the nearby islands of Mabul or Kapalai. The resorts also boast some excellent local macro-diving which is a great complement to the breathtaking big fish action of Sipadan Island. Diving in Sipadan operates on a permit basis and is restricted to 120 permits per day. We recommend staying at least 4 nights to allow for the opportunity to dive at the island. The longer you stay the greater your chances of having more dives here (normally 4 dives a day).


Permits are not allocated in advance so no-one, including the resorts themselves, can make guarantees about the number of days you will dive at Sipadan, unless your stay is longer. When you book through Dive The World, we will apply for entry permits to the restricted area on your behalf. This will give you the same chance (or better) of obtaining Sipadan permits as booking elsewhere.

For some resorts, Dive The World can arrange in advance for you to pay for extra permits, subject to availability. It is not a guarantee but it is the best way possible to increase your chances of multiple days of diving at Sipadan.

Malaysia Borneo, Sabah, Tunku Abdul Rahman Park  马来西亚婆罗州  沙巴州属东姑阿都拉曼海岛公园

Named after Malaysia's first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, the five islands of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park (TAR) and their surrounding seas have long been a haven of peace and tranquility. The islands protect the natural vegetation, animals and the underwater gardens of the coral reefs that provide visitors with endless hours of enjoyment. TAR encompasses five islands: Gaya, Sapi, Manukan, Mamutik and Sulug.

The fish are almost as numerous and even more colourful than the corals, spotted, striped and patterned in a variety of rainbow colours.  Pink-and-green Parrot fish, the Turquoise Moon Wrasse and Butterfly fish in all combinations of colours are available. Clown fish, sea cucumbers and star fish are common.

Malaysia Borneo, Sabah, Pulau TigaMarine Park  马来西亚婆罗州  沙巴州属迪加岛海洋公园

Pulau Tiga is the largest of the three islands that make up Pulau Tiga Park. Its beautiful landscape and unspoilt natural environment has attracted CBS TV Network of the USA to use this island as the main location for the popular 'Survivor' Programme, dubbing it the 'Survivor Island'.

This island was formed through the eruption of several mud volcanoes. The last explosion happened in 1941 and since then the volcanoes have remained relatively passive.

Situated north of Kuala Penyu, opposite the largely swampy Klias Peninsula, is a group of islands with coral reefs and sandy beaches. Pulau Tiga Park is a fascinating spot rarely visited by tourists. Gazetted in 1978, it covers 158 square kilometers, most of which is sea. It comprises three small islands - Pulau Tiga, Pulau Kalampunian Besar and Pulau Kalampunian Damit (snake island). The islands has been dubbed 'Survivor islands' from a television series which was filmed here in 1996.

The park is named after the largest island, Pulau Tiga, whose name is derived from three undulating humps visible from a distance when approaching the island. The islands were designated a forest reserve in 1933. The Park has particularly interesting flora and fauna and a rich marine life, with good diving and snorkelling over the reefs. 

迪加岛国家公园成立于1985年,以保护迪加岛,邻近的珊瑚礁,和它的两个岛屿(Pulau Kalampunian Besar岛和 Pulau Kalampunian Damit岛, 也称为‘蛇岛’)。今日海拔100公尺的迪加岛相信是由数个泥火山所喷出的泥浆,经过长年堆积所形成。至今岛上的泥火山仍不断涌出温暖的泥桨。

迪加岛是位于亚庇西南方,约35海里处的一个岛屿,从瓜拉班尤 (Kuala Penyu) 乘坐快艇约15分钟船程即可抵达。由三个岛屿组成的迪加岛公园(于1978年宪布),其中迪加岛是是面积最大的岛屿,其余两个分别是卡蓝布尼安达密岛 (Kalampunian Island) 以及卡蓝布尼安伯沙岛(Kalampunian Besar Island) 上发现多种类海蛇,因此也有较为人知的蛇岛之称)。
