Sabah - The Land Below the Wind



With its rugged, mountainous terrain, Sabah possesses relatively few coastal beaches. However, it does possess some of the best islands in the region.

Tanjung Aru, the seaside resort of Tanjung Aru is 6 km from Kota Kinabalu. International class hotel accommodations or budget chalets are available.

Sipadan Island, shaped like a 'shitake' mushroom, Pulau Sipadan draws diving enthusiasts from all over the world because of its exceptional water clarity, its unusual seascape, and its extraordinarily wide variety of marine life. Sipadan is the only oceanic island in Malaysia.

Pulau Layang-Layang is a man-made island, located 165 miles northwest of Kota Kinabalu, was created in 1991 from a coral atoll in the South China Sea. Soil from the mainland and sand pumped from the seabed formed what is today a major attraction for scuba divers and anglers. The 5,000 to 6,000 foot drop around the reef makes it an excellent dive site and the island has become a sanctuary for thousands of terns. Chalet-type accommodations are available.
