Sipadan Island Dive Resort

The name 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. This description is not far from reality: it might even actually downplay a little bit, as Sipadan is considered one of the five top diving destinations in the world.

Quite possibly an absolute must dive in every diver’s “WANT LIST”.

This small, rainforest-covered tropical island rising from a 700 meter abyss in the Celebes Sea is a destination the committed diver cannot miss. The Sipadan Island Dive Resort, one of a handful of operators allowed on this protected island, offers great food and comfortable accommodation in simple beach front chalets with attached bathrooms and power points, with three boat dives a day, unlimited shore diving and not-to-be missed excursions to nearby very different dive sites of Kapalai.
