Borneo Divers Mabul Resort lies at the heart of Mabul Island, a former fishing village now famous for its exotic, diverse marine life and internationally-renowned dive spots. Located off the South Eastern coast of Sabah, Mabul is 15km away from the world famous dive site of Sipadan Island, hailed by Jacques Cousteau as “an untouched piece of art”.

This scenic diver’s paradise is easily accessible via the international airport of Tawau in Sabah, followed by a comfortable 50-minute drive to the launching point near Semporna, where our ferry boat departs for the resort each morning. Miles of white sandy beaches and unspoilt tropical island coast greet you upon arrival.

Alternatively, travellers may opt to fly in to Kota Kinabalu or Kuala Lumpur International Airports before catching a connecting flight to Tawau.
