Malaysia as a country consists of Peninsular and Borneo Malaysia. There are two main areas on Borneo to visit, Sabah and Mabul Islands. The main island where Sabah is located is divided between three countries – Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brunei. It is home to some of the world’s oldest rainforests, pristine beaches, roaring rivers, majestic cave systems and mighty mountains. Such biodiverse habitats mean wildlife is excitingly abundant and varied, with many endemic species such as Bornean Orangutans, Pygmy Elephants, and Proboscis Monkeys.
Mabul Island is located in the East Malaysian state of Sabah in Northern Borneo. It is the main gateway to world-famous Sipadan, a protected dive site just 15-20 minutes away by speedboat. On Mabul, macro diving is the name of the game. Many of the sites are sloping coral reefs to a sandy bottom. It is common to spot frogfish, blue-ringed octopus, flamboyant cuttlefish and ornate ghost pipefish. The neighboring island Sipadan is famous for massive schools of fish, spiraling barracudas, bumphead parrot fish, green turtles and schooling reef sharks.
