Pulau Lankayan

The new diving frontier in the Sulu Sea

 

Lankayan Island is located in the Sulu Sea north west of Sandakan on the north east coast of Sabah.  It is a jewel-like tiny island in the Sulu Sea, an hour & a half boat transfer's north of Sandakan. The normal route to the island is through Kota Kinabalu International Airport. From there, a connecting flight takes the diver to Sandakan where transfers can be arranged from the airport.

 

This small paradise island, with stretches of white sandy beaches, swaying casuarinas pines and beautiful sunsets is another island with only one dive resort, Lankayan Island Dive Resort (LIDR).  The resort was built in 1997 and since then tourists have slowly been discovering the serenity and tranquility of this remote peace of paradise.  Lankayan offers a fantastic variety of macro marine life, a muck-diving arena that rivals both Mabul and Kapalai Island.

 

Lankayan is soon to be declared part of an immense Marine Conservation Area. Unpopulated and covered bythick tropical rainforest on its topside, this peaceful, untouched little bit of paradise is ringed byan endless pure white sandy beach, offering simply elegant and exquisite accommodation in a handful of wooden, roomy and perfectly appointed seafront double-occupancy chalets. Meals are informally served at the central open building, which boasts an amazingly beautiful open-air wooden terrace, the ideal spot for after dinner, relaxation and chatting, all the while admiring the dozens of juvenile blacktip sharks swimming leisurely a few feet beneath. While the ideal destination for those who search tranquility and relaxation in a virgin natural setting and for families with children, Lankayan Island is also one of the hottest diving destination on the map today: its dive sites - all just a few minutes away - boast unbelievably colorful macro fauna, fascinating wrecks and in season from March to May, regular sightings of gigantic and harmless whale sharks, the " dream date " of every diver in the world. 

Latest update from Lankayan Island.
 
A group of divers saw the whale shark  2 days ago during their 2nd dive
This  is the 3rd time we spotted the shark this year.  
First sighting of whale shark  was on 5 March 06 byour guests.
Second sighting 3 weeks later on 26 March 06 by Italian guests  at 3 meters depth.
 
The whale sharks never fails to visit us every year.
 
On May 3rd 2005 a group of divers spotted the shark during their dive.
In June 2005  the whale shark came back and this time right in front of the dive centre.
The group went at 7 am for their first dive and saw the shark for more than 30 mins playing
around.  After the dive the group was so excited and informed their other group of divers.
Without wasting time they went down  with their instructor. Less than 10 mins at 6 metres
the whale shark appeared again and circle around them for 20 mins. It was a fantastic sight
according to them

Lankayan Island is a true Macroworld paradise. Saved are large stretches of beautiful hard and soft corals belonging to numerous genera, among which are multitudes of macroworld subjects and juvenile fishes, colorful to the extreme.

It is possible that some of the species found here are as yet undescribed. Pelagics also abound here, from large schools of scads, yellow tail barracudas, jacks, and many more. The many schools of medium to large humphead parrotfish are always exciting to encounter. Sometimes, the diver is lucky enough to meet large rays, guitarfish and even manatees.

For those more inclined towards the smaller denizens of the reefs, there are numerous juvenile fishes, clown anemone fishes, decorator and spider crabs, coral shrimps, nudibranchs, prawn gobies and such rarer subjects as jawfish, ornate ghost pipefish and frogfish.
