We spent a few days diving here after visiting the sister island of Nabucco. The diving here is not as challenging but is full of varied life. The food was excellent and the accommodation has a wonderful view across the lagoon.

Hi there, unfortunately there is no speed boat from Tawau to Nunukan Island Resort. Maybe Lonely planet writes about the village called "Nunukan" which is next to the malaysian border? Sometimes these two destinations with the same name get mixed up! To reach our Island Resort you should go from Tawau to Tarakan or Berau - from there we can organise a transfer boat for you! We are looking forward to your visit!
