Malaysia

Near the northeastern corner of Borneo, the small islands of Mabul and Kapalai are the gateway to spectacular diving. Top of the list is Sipadan Island Marine Reserve, where coral-covered walls rise 2,000 feet from the sea floor to attract vast numbers of green and hawksbill turtles, massive schools of barracuda and jacks, and a range of big pelagics from mantas and hammerheads to the occasional whale shark. Mabul is known for its muck diving and extensive invertebrate population, and the unique water village of Kapalai holds resident mandarinfish. This pairing of large and small make Malaysia one of the most intriguing dive destinations in the world.
