Mabul Island, Lahad Datu Reviews

  • A very beautiful island. Words can not explain the beauty of this place. A small island a bit far away from Semporna accessible with boats. There are various options for a stay, multiple resorts also cheaper options to stay. There are various options for scuba diving and snorkelling here. Most people stay here would be interested in scuba diving. There are very beautiful coral reefs in this region. If you visit Sabah, this island is worth a shop over. The colourful waters all around make it worth a visit.

  • Beautiful island village, on clear nights if you are lucky you can spot some nebulas with the naked eye! Only cons is the island is filled with trash from the villagers.

  • been here 3rd times..never dissapoint me..

  • Good diving even visibility was bad. Even see Manta ray on one dive. Island is covered with trash what is a shame. Local gipsys seem to trash a lot.

  • 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.
