has been little more than a sand bank, until the construction of
Sipadan-Kapalai Resort. The resort activities have prevented fisherman from

the protected north end, sloping from just beneath the surface to appr. 20m,
is teeming with fish life in all colors, and the sharp eyes of our dedicated
divemasters can help you to spot such incredible critters like clown
frogfish, mandarin fish, nudibraches, flambuoyant cuttlefish, mantis shrimp
to name but a few. At the southern end of the reef a slope runs down to just
about 12m where a long but narrow sandy area is a favorite hiding place for
sting rays and turtles can be found resting at coral formations to both
sides. By venturing further out to the deep end sightings of whitetip reef
sharks are also common. Kapalai can be reached from Semporna within appr.
