Have you ever thought of spending some unforgettable moments on Lankayan Island? It is an exotic and beautiful place, with silver sandy beaches, virgin tropical rainforest, green waters and colorful fauna. You can find the ideal spot to practice your diving skills and admire the extraordinary sea life.

Discovered just twenty years ago, the place is a small tropical resort located on the northeastern part of Borneo Island, in Sabah, Malaysia and about 15 kilometers away from Sandakan. This exotic place has become famous among enthusiasts for its natural conditions and its perfect diving spots.

The island has been recently declared part of the Marine Protected Area and strongly promotes the concept of eco-tourism, since it is covered by tropical rainforests and pure silver sandy beaches. Lankayan Island also offers great accommodations in spacious wooden chalets with a spectacular sea view.

This exotic destination is also known for its great diving spots. There are no less than 14 sites, just minutes away, with extraordinary displays of sea life. You can observe the giant whale shark and small ribbon eels or watch the baby turtles crawling out of their sandy nests and struggling to reach the sea.

Just grab your diving equipment, choose either a shallow or a deep spot and plunge in. You can also rent underwater cameras from the island`s center to shoot memorable pictures of marine life.

If you need assistance or have any questions, just ask for an instructor from the diving center and he or she will gladly help you in any given situation. You can definitely trust the personnel and put your life into their hands, as they are well trained, competent and know how to deal with dangerous situations.

So what are you waiting for? Give it a chance, and we know you will not be disappointed with Lankayan Island.
