Photos & Description for this Lankayan Island Dive Resort

Lankayan Island is just 15km from Sandakan off north-eastern Sabah in the Sulu Sea.  This tropical coral island is within a Marine Protected Area, and is a key nesting area for Green and Hawksbill Turtles.  The marine life is stunning; sightings of Black Tip Reef Sharks, Hawksbill and Green Turtles, Mandarinfish and even Whale Sharks are not uncommon in the waters surrounding Lankayan, and critter hunters won’t be disappointed as the reefs and shallows are full of the weird and wonderful.  There are also a few wrecks to explore.

The resort is all wooden beach bungalows, each with modern amenities including ensuite facility and cable TV.  The restaurant is a traditional open style building with buffet, and the terrace is a great place to relax with a post-dive drink and watch the baby Black Tip Reef Sharks patrolling the shallows below, while dissecting the day's diving.
