The famous Sipadan Island lies five degrees north of the equator in the Sulawesi Sea (Celebes Sea), 35km south of Semporna on Sabah’s mainland, Malaysia. Like many tropical islands, it is thickly forested and surrounded by sandy beaches. Sipadan is an oceanic island and was formed by living corals growing on top of an extinct undersea volcano, which rises 600m from the seabed. The geographic position of Sipadan puts it in the centre of the richest marine habitat in the world, the heart of the Indo-Pacific basin.

Sipadan is rated as the world’s top dive sites. For the true diving enthusiast, the Island needs no introduction. Praised by the internationally renowned oceanographer and film maker Jacques Cousteau as one of the best diving spot in the world, it is unique as the only oceanic island in Malaysia. Sipadan rises 600m from the seabed providing spectacular wall dives and underwater garden. More than 3,000 species of fish and hundred of coral species have been classified in this richest of ecosystem. Sipadan is also renowned for its unusually large numbers of green and hawksbill turtle, which gather there to mate and nest. It is not unusual to see more than 20 turtles on each dive.

Another unique feature to divers is the turtle tomb that contains many skeletal remains of turtle. The residential schooling Barracuda and big-eye trevally are one of the highlights of every diver’s Wish-list, which often gather in thousand forming spectacular tornado-like formations. Mantas, eagle-rays, scalloped hammerhead shark and whale sharks may also be seen, as well as an abundance of macro life.

Sipadan Water Village (SWV) is an exclusive resort constructed with Bajau Architectural Design, located in Mabul Island . The entire resort is built on stilts with panoramic sea-view. With its authentic design and coupled with crystal clear water and amazing marine life, Sipadan Water Village is indeed a dream paradise offering world class diving and snorkelling along with true relaxation and comfort.
