Your dive master will pick an island to visit on traveling day depends on the sea conditions between these 2 islands:
Mataking Island is a just off the coast of Malaysian Borneo, two small islands lay in the turquoise water of the Celebes Sea, their white sandy beaches linked by a narrow sandbar at low tide. In the waters around the island, colourful coral gardens are home to an astonishing variety of marine creatures. The perfect beach gives way to wild tropical jungle in the interior, where birdsong is the only sound.
Its incredible natural beauty has remained almost untouched. The simple, elegant wooden structures of The Reef Dive Resort is the only development on the two islands of Mataking and Mataking Kecil (Small Mataking). There are plenty of opportunities to explore and enjoy the pristine surroundings, above ground and underwater – even the most restless will be able to keep themselves busy here. Trips to the legendary diving spots of Sipadan Island are also arranged from here. Those that are intent on relaxation and rejuvenation are free to just soak up the sunshine, indulge in the delicious offerings of The Reef restaurant or get pampered like royalty in the Spa.
The tranquil ambience and enchanting natural scenery creates the perfect setting for a romantic retreat or even a wedding. Create memories to last a lifetime in the midst of the secluded exclusivity of your own tropical island.
Pom Pom Island
Pom Pom Island is an island with a laid back and casual ambience—as the name alludes—Pom Pom is situated circa 45 minutes away from Semporna. Apart from the gorgeous glittering white sandy beach that surrounds it, Pom Pom Island is also filled with lush green mangroves that keep it shady and cool.
Simply climb into a hammock to enjoy the beautiful sea view with a good book and a glass of pina colada, or get into your bathing suit and enjoy a dip in the clear aquamarine water. Either way, you can’t go wrong in Pom Pom. Being one of Semporna’s many dive havens, scuba diving aficionados can also spend the day underwater fawning over the vivid marine lives.
