Mataking island is located in the Celebes Sea in the southern part of Sabah, Malaysia and it is also one of the most popular islands in Semporna town. The Reef Dive Resort Mataking is built on a private tropical island and is strictly allowed only for in-house guests. The need for privacy and tranquility is absolutely met for you to enjoy the embrace of nature.

Mataking Island is composed of two islands, the big (Mataking Besar) and the small (Mataking Kecil), but the area is only 40 acres. During the low tide, the sand bridge connects the two islands that are separately 500meter distance and forms a trailing white sand beach for walking on the water. Unlimited snorkeling in the crystal clear sea, surrounded by tropical fish and the colorful underwater world. You can also be swinging on the sea and enjoy family fun. The post office located under the sea is the most attractive point for those diving enthusiasts from all over the world. Divers put their sealed letters into the mailboxes on the bottom of the sea. The staff will collect them regularly and mail your letters. Shortly after, you will receive a letter from the sea to yourself.

Mataking is  listed as a national turtle sanctuary. Every year from April to September, the turtles will enter the ashore to lay on their eggs. The staff will transfer the eggs to the hatchery for protection. After a few weeks, the baby turtles will hatch and move back to the sea.
