Sipidan Island is about a half hour journey from Semporna on Eastern Malaysia. It is just a few minutes from Mabul Island and Kapalai Island. The island is Malaysia's only oceanic island, formed by coral growing on a volcanic cone and rising up over thousands of years.
Sipidan is widely regarded as one of the best dive locations in the world. The underwater geography is amazing with large caves and a reef wall that descends to over 600 metres. The waters are teaming with marine life, there are thought to be over 3000 species of fish alone. Countless other underwater wonders can also be seen, turtles, crustaceans, rays, eels and hundreds of varieties of coral can also be seen. Hammerhead sharks, barracuda and huge schools of Parrotfish are some of the experiences divers may expect to encounter.
Above the water the island itself is covered in tropical jungles, alive with birdlife, monitor lizards, fruit bats and other fauna. As of 2004 there is no accommodation available on the island to protect the unique habitat, however there are accommodation facilities on nearby Mabul and Kapalai Islands and dive operators also operate from here.
