Mabul Island, Lahad Datu Reviews

  • Came here on the first day of my AOW. Visual condition was bad underwater as storm had just passed. You can still see the sunken ships and the marine life surrounding them. BE CAREFUL of sea snakes and lion fish.

  • Good place for taking photos of small underwater creatures

  • Diving and snorkeling, very good reef, with abundance of sea turtles and your share of jelly fish. Hard to find middle range accommodation. The village is nice, dirty, but nice. Locals are very friendly and you can buy some supplies.

  • Very simple lifestyle there. Small malay kampung. The kids there play with the things they created. Good place to relax and slow pace.

  • This island and islands around Semporna are magical and beautiful. Unfortunately, there are alot of rubbishes thrown away in the sea makes them look so unpretty.
