Mantanani Island, Pulau Mantanani, Sabah, Malaysia.

The island, shaped-like knife, has a beach that stretches up to 2.500 metres. The fact, that this thin island has never been commercialized, secures its hidden secrets from great number of divers and thus giving you a private but full enjoyment to the tropical island. Unfairly blessed with age-old shipwrecks and critters inhabiting in and around it.

The island promises the most diverse marine life with visibility up to 40 metres. Many species of rays flutter around like blue spotted ray and marbled sting ray amongst large schools of fish.

Besides that muck diving is excellent with the quiet existence of imperial shirmps, jaw fish ribbon eels, seahorses, pink-eyed gobbles and the jaw-dropping blue ringed octopus, amidst nudibranch of all sorts.

Day Trip Package - Rediscover nature in this secluded romantic island for diving, snorkeling and bird watching. Unless you are diving with us, let the sun decide your itinerary. When the sun is vertically atop, relax on the sandy beach in between snorkels.

As the sun starts to set, go skin diving in the clear blue seawater and be hugged by the sea’s unfathomable pressure around your body as the fish schools past you. By the time the sun dissapears into the west horizon completely, you would know that your body has surmounted the submersion of a lifetime.
