What else need we say? As we know it, this is the world’s number one diving spot. Best suggestion from us to you? The Barracuda Point. Turtles, whitetip sharks, batfish, jacks, barracuda, etc; you name it, this place has it, and you can see them all most likely in just one dive. It’s just that good. You will do your wall dive here along a cliff which is 600 meters down to the sea bed.

By the way, this is trial move from Sabah Parks to measure the impact towards Sipadan Island.
