Pulau Layang-Layang

Malaysia has some of the most beautiful islands in the world. If you are looking for a place to unwind where you can enjoy the sun and sea, you can head to many of these islands which are around the country.

Pulau Layang-Layang a great getaway

Layang-Layang island is located at the north of East Malaysian state Sabah. Known also as Swallow Reef, it is typically a dive resort. It is located in extremely deep waters to at least 2000 meters. Divers here would normally find the usual species of Hammerhead sharks and various other fishes. Most of the island is made from reclaimed land and the waters are still pretty much untouched.

Natural wonders at its best

Swallow Reef is located in the middle of the ocean and so far still preserves its natural resources including the pristine coral reef. While Layang-Layang is a diving resort, it does not have much holidaying facilities and fishing is prohibited.

Getting to Layang-Layang

Getting here is very easy as there are flights into Kota Kinabalu, the state capital of Sabah. From Kota Kinabalu, you can then fly into Layang-Layang. Take note that you need to confirm with the resort in Layang-Layang when you are in Kota Kinabalu so that they can expect your arrival to this island.
