Diving in Mataking

Layang Layang Island, a coral atoll that is truly one of nature’s best creations. Dubbed “The Jewel of the Borneo Banks”, Layang Layang reveals, to many people’s delight the things dreams are made of… a truly magical marine kingdom of bottomless blue decorated with a kaleidoscope of nature’s most lavish seascape.

In the middle of ancient South China Sea, 300kms North West off the coast of Sabah, Layang Layang lies like a beautiful emerald kissed by the sun and teased playfully by the winds. Time and tide has linked 13 coral reefs to form a languid lagoon with just a fraction of it breaking the calm surface of the sea. This atoll is also home to one of the most converted diving sites in the world.

Although the dive season for Mataking is open all year round, the optimum conditions are between February and November. The portion of this period of time which is less busy is during February and July.
