Enjoyed our snorkeling and diving here, but have to say that the water did not seem very clean, which concerned us. The fish and visibility were average, so we only went one day and cancelled our planned second visit. The coral on the other hand...More

The package to the island (day trip) would considered it pretty expensive (we paid through a local agent, RM160 per adult) but then considering as an experience coming all the way here, hmm... just let it be. However, we did enjoy the trip - speedboat...More

Went to manukan and sapi island for the island hopping. The view in manukan is nothing compared to sapi, however in the terms of crowd, i choose manukan. As thenplce is not too pack and the underwater view was still considered nice.

After reading TA reviews, we chose Mamutik Island for snorkelling and were not disappointed. There is not much coral but there are certainly plenty of beautiful fish and the most wonderful long spined black sea urchins about 100 m off shore, just near where the...More

The park is great with several islands to choose from. Most islands has food and drink available on them and even in August it was possible to find a quiet area of the beach away from others. Transport to the islands is from the jetty....More

I had visited Manukan and Sapi island. If you are able to stay on Manukan island its probably much better than sharing the jetty and beach with hundreds of other tourists. The beaches were clean and the water's crystal clear. You will be able to...More

Hi Luis! Agree with the answers above. However, it has been raining daily every afternoon so you might want to check weather forecast before purchasing tickets.

Better go to Sipadan if you want to dive. TAR is more to "picnic time with family/ friends" kind of island. Other than that, you can also go to "Pulau Tiga"/ Mabul/ Kapalai/ Langkayan islands.
