Located 300km northwest of Kota Kinabalu in the Spratly Islands, Layang Layang, also known as Swallow Reef, rises 2000m out of the South China Sea to offer some truly fantastic diving. Dramatic drop offs and nutrient rich currents have created stunning coral lined walls, with the ever present possibility of large pelagic encounters with Scalloped Hammerheads, Leopard Sharks, and even the odd Manta Ray or Whale Shark alongside a huge variety of reef life and critters. During the monsoon months between November and January the island is closed to tourists.
Built in traditional longhouse style, this island resort has 86 simple and comfortable, air conditioned ensuite rooms, all with a fridge, TV and private veranda. The small island has a large lagoon to be explored, and diving is exquisite on the steep walls just minutes away, with the chance to see Hammerheads and other large pelagics. This is a great spot to dive some lesser known sites with great visibility and superb marine life.
