8. Sipadan Island
Situated off the east coast of Sabah in Malaysian Borneo, Sipadan Island is one of the best destinations for scuba diving anywhere in the globe. The coral reef with its rich marine life and the beautiful sandy beaches make this island very attractive to tourists worldwide.
There are no restaurants, so make sure you bring your own lunch and snacks with you. And don’t forget to take along some clear water or any other drinks. To preserve the island in a pristine state, all resorts on Sipadan Island have been closed. So consider resorts on the nearby islands of Kapalai (about 15 minutes by boat) and Mabul (about 25 minutes by boat).
