Scuba Diving Malaysia-Pulau Lankayan

Lankayan Island is located in the Sulu Sea north west if Sandakan on the north east coast of Sabah. This small paradise island, with stretches of white sandy beaches.
 Lankayan offers a fantastic variety of macro marine life, a muck-diving arena that rivals both Mabul and Kapalai Island. However, with new protection from local fishermen, the larger marine creatures such as leopard sharks, marbled stingray and giant grouper have returned to the surrounding reefs. Schools of bumphead parrotfish, yellowtail barracuda and scads also appear at many dive sites.
 Among the 40 dive sites is Lankayan Wreck, an ocean going fish poaching vessel than demised in the area of its illegal activities. This wreck now hosts many different species of fish from small glassfish, harlequin ghost pipefish, painted frogfish to giant grouper and marbled stingrays.
 Many rare subjects can be found on many other dive sites including seahorses, flying gurnards, flamboyant cuttlefish, jawfish, dragonets and sand divers. Having Pulau Selingan, home to Sabah's Turtle Sanctuary nearby, it is not a surprise to also see the occasional hawksbill or green turtle on one of your dives.
