Diving holiday in Malaysia: Mabul's Sipadan Water Village!

Diving holiday in Malaysia. Mabul, an islet off the Malaysian coast, is famous for its "muck dive" and is located a few kilometers from the famous Sipadan, known as an "unspoiled masterpiece of art" by divers from all over the world. A fairytale setting for your diving stay in Malaysia!

Located on Mabul Island, it has 45 water cottages equipped with every comfort. The fully equipped Dive Center offers PADI courses up to the Dive Master level and has fiberglass boats of 12 m, Scubapro equipment and 12-liter aluminum cylinders and organizes day trips to Mabul, Kapalai and Sipadan.

The cottages are connected to the beach by a jetty, built from local wood. The style recalls a traditional stilt village of the Bajau Laut, the "sea gypsies". The bungalows, located less than one meter from the surface of the sea and placed in such a way as to safeguard the seabed and the coral reef, are divided into 4 types of various sizes. We find the Standard, Deluxe, Grand Deluxe and Junior types. All equipped with balcony, private bathroom with shower with hot and cold water, fan, minibar, tea / coffee set. The Deluxe cottages also have a bathtub, while the Grand Suite cottages even have a jacuzzi. There is a restaurant and bar serving Asian and Western cuisine. In the lobby available wi-fi connection and satellite TV. Possibility of unlimited diving with a buddy from the beach.


The dives that can be done in this area are very different from each other. In the Mabul area the sandier seabed allows encounters with small inhabitants of the sea and therefore satisfies lovers of macro photography, while just 20 minutes by boat you reach the Sipadan Marine Park, included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, home of some of the most amazing marine species on the planet. This small island, immersed in the Celebes Sea, has a rich and exciting marine life: the island is in fact the emerged part of an underwater volcanic cone and therefore has a vertical seabed that goes down to 800 meters deep, creating caves and cracks where a large amount of flora and fauna find their habitat. Wall diving, drift diving and beautiful canyons allow you not only to enjoy the beauty of its corals and small and colorful inhabitants but also to swim among schools of jack fish, barracudas, tuna and hundreds of turtles, or to meet some hammerhead, whitetip and leopard sharks. However, there is no shortage of moray eels, anemones with manta rays and rays that swim among colorful gorgonians and sponges. But one of the natural spectacles that made Sipadan famous is the silver carousel of thousands of barracudas swimming in circles: entering and swimming in the slow vortex is an incredible emotion!

Le immersioni che si possono effettuare in questa area sono molto diverse tra loro. Nella zona di Mabul il fondale più sabbioso permette incontri con piccoli abitanti del mare e quindi soddisfa gli amanti della macrofotografia, mentre a soli 20 minuti di barca si giunge al Parco Marino di Sipadan, inserita nella lista dei patrimoni dell’umanità UNESCO, casa di alcune delle specie marine più stupefacenti del pianeta. Questa piccola isola, immersa nel Mar di Celebes, ha una vita marina ricca ed entusiasmante: l’isola è infatti la parte emersa di un cono vulcanico sottomarino e dunque dotata di un fondale verticale che scende sino a 800 mt di profondità, creando grotte e spaccature dove trova habitat una grande quantità di flora e fauna. Immersioni in parete, immersioni in corrente e bellissimi canyon permettono non solo di godere della bellezza dei suoi coralli e dei piccoli e colorati abitanti ma anche di nuotare tra banchi di jack fish, barracuda, tonni e centinaia di tartarughe, o di fare qualche incontro con gli squali martello, pinna bianca e leopardo. Non mancano comunque murene, anemoni con mante e razze che nuotano fra variopinte gorgonie e spugne. Ma uno degli spettacoli naturali che hanno reso famosa Sipadan è il carosello argentato di migliaia di barracuda che nuotano in cerchio: entrare e nuotare nel lento vortice è un’emozione incredibile!

Pulau Sipadan
Situato a circa 15/20 minuti di barca veloce da Mabul, Sipadan è celebre in tutto il mondo per i suoi straordinari fondali pressoché intatti da quando nel 2005 l’area è stata dichiarata riserva integrale protetta e sono stati chiusi i resort situati sull’isola. Oggi solamente un numero limitato di fortunati sub può accedere alle bellezze che offrono questi fondali, punta emersa di un cono vulcanico le cui pareti verticali arrivano fino ad oltre 600 metri di profondità, habitat di una grande quantità di specie marine stanziali e pelagiche come tartarughe, banchi di barracuda, razze, aquile di mare e squali di varie specie. L’ingresso al parco è strettamente regolamentato dalle autorità locali e giornalmente vengono ammessi poco più di un centinaio di subacquei provenienti da Mabul e Kapalai. I pacchetti diver dei resort di Mabul e Kapalai sono fatti in modo da garantire almeno una giornata di immersione a Sipadan durante un soggiorno di un minimo di notti, ma a causa del numero limitato di ingressi al parco marino, specialmente nei periodi di alta stagione, la conferma della possibilità di immergersi a Sipadan verrà data solamente in loco. Il costo di ingresso al parco marino di Sipadan è di RM40 per persona al giorno da pagare in loco.

Pulau Mabul
Situato a circa 15 minuti di motoscafo da Sipadan e a 40 minuti da Semporna sulla terraferma, Mabul è riconosciuto come uno dei migliori siti di “muck-diving” del mondo (immersioni che non prevedono fondali particolarmente profondi). I suoi fondali sabbiosi e le barriere coralline, con la loro incredibile biodiversità sono il paradiso per gli appassionati di macro fotografia,  offrendo un ampia varietà di piccole creature marine. La temperatura media dell’acqua è intorno ai 29°-30° con una visibilità dai varia dai 5 ai 30 m.  I siti di immersione sono circa 17.

Pulau Kapalai 
Come per la vicina Mabul, Kapalai offre alcune delle migliori muck dive al mondo. Tra le varie creature che si possono incontrare nei 13 siti di immersione che offre l’isola numerosi sono i pesci scorpione ed i pesci coccodrillo oltre a nudibranchi, gamberi, invertebrati, cefalopodi, serpenti di mare, murene, pesci scorpione, frog fish, pesci ago fantasma, pesci mandarino, ecc. I siti di immersione sono circa 17.
