The name of Sipadan is simply legendary in diving circles, conjuring images of twirling tornados of barracudas and jacks, patrolling hammerhead sharks, millions of technicolored reef fish and, above all, dozens of sea turtles swimming peacefully everywhere.

Sipadan consists of a small island surrounded by steep coral walls which drop rapidly to over 800 metres at the ocean floor.

This makes it an ideal spot for wall and drift dives where the diver maintains depth while allowing the (sometimes quite strong) current to take her past the coral walls, an experience much like watching a movie.

Turtles, white-tipped reef sharks, barracuda and hump-head parrot fish are common sightings around Sipadan. This fantastic variety of marine life makes the area an underwater photographer's paradise.

There is actually one large luxury resort named Kapalai Dive Resort which is built on stilts on top of the existing sandbank. Most rooms have glass bottom floors where you can see its spectacular underwater life. The rooms have balconies, there are a few kilometers of walkway, an excellent sundeck and the food is outstanding. Besides diving and snorkeling you can also rent a kayak and explore the outer sandbanks or just enjoy sunset and sunrise.
