The Marine Biodiversity of Sabah, Malaysia

Located on the island of Borneo, Sabah is the easternmost state in Malaysia. It has a population of over three million people and is home to Mount Kinabalu, one of the world’s most prominent mountains and one of the highest peaks in the region. Sabah also includes a number of islands and marine parks where visitors can snorkel and scuba dive to explore the many species living in the waters off the coast.

 

 

 

Sipadan

One major attraction of the area for visitors is its exceptional marine biodiversity. A location known for its wide array of marine life is the island of Sipadan. Located off the coast of Borneo, Sipadan has become known to many as one of the world’s leading sites for scuba diving, due in part to the many species that can be observed on a dive off the island’s coast. Hawksbill turtles, eagle rays, manta rays, whale sharks, parrotfish and barracudas can all be found there, along with over 3000 other species of fish. Indeed, since the island of Sipadan itself is only 30 acres in size, its considerable reputation is based entirely on its world-renowned diving experience.

Other species observed at this location include turtles, sharks and batfish. Divers can descend to a maximum depth of over 100 feet. Divers exploring this location can also visit the nearby Coral Gardens, where many forms of coral can be observed. Another dive where the marine biodiversity can be particularly seen is the North Point wall dive.
