        神秘的海岛,水很清澈,很干净,在这里住了四天三晚,感觉非常美妙,尝试了浮潜见到了神秘的海底生物。这里珊瑚很多,不愧是浮潜圣地。下次还会来!Everything is so perfect here. The people are nice also very kind. The environment here is quiet and comfortable. I will be back again with my whole family next time. So wonderful experience.

        You need to take a boat from Semporna for about 45 minutes. From Sepilok is quite far. Please be aware that most of the guests are Chinese and therefore food is mainly chinese.
