The tagline, “Malaysia, truly Asia” also extends to different diving destinations in the country with the most common found those in the southeastern region of Sabah. The island is packed with different marine life and diving options which vary to suit a wide range of divers.

With that, here are some of the best diving spots in Peninsular Malaysia.
As a tiny island in the northern part of Sandakan City, Lankayan offers only one luxurious resort that caters mostly to divers.

Avid divers though will have the time of their lives while in Lankayan. It has some of the best dive spots and diving conditions in Eastern Sabah.
If you want to see corals and big species of marine animals, this island is your best bet. Although it’s not really an island because it is located on a concrete landing strip with a marine base and resort, that makes it all the more attractive. In addition to that, Layang-Layang’s remote location makes it almost untouched by human population, adding an unspoiled quality to its waters.
Last but definitely not the least, this island boasts of pristine waters, long shorelines and of course, amazing marine life! It probably is at the top of every list of the best diving spots in Malaysia despite the fact that divers here can be limited because of restrictions implemented in the number of dives allowed every day. You need a daily permit to explore its waters and it’s not a hindrance at all as you’ll be rewarded with unforgettable dives. Great experiences does not come that easy, right?
