MABUL

"We slept well. Even Johan had slept well for the first time.
The second day, we were taken to a snorkeling location twice in the day. This was super cool! It was so beautiful! Mega large corals completely colored and many beautiful fish! We had never seen this before! Wow it was really worth it! We also saw an unwise turtle, really mega big! Lots of starfish, a water snake, lionfish, nemos, schools of fish, everything is there! At the second we swam along such a deep wall, where the divers entered. The weather was also very beautiful here!
Opposite our jetty are some wooden boats packed with sails. This is where the "Sea Gypsies" live. These people live on the sea and live between the Philippines and Malaysia. These people don't even have their own nationality. They also no longer come ashore as 10 minutes? They catch fish that they sell on land or exchange for other food. They too have a lot of children! Those children sail in a kind of small wooden canoe that is occasionally flooded. They have to empty it a bit with their bucket every now and then."

Mabul is a small oval island bordered by sandy beaches. It is located 2-3 meters above sea level off the southeast coast of Sabah about 25 km from Semporna. came. Most of the Bajau Laut people live in the Musu village while the Suluk people live in the Suluk village. Children usually play around the only school on the island - the Sekolah Kebangsaan Pulau Mabul (Mabul Island National School).
The island is small and very beautiful with white sand beaches and coconut palms. It is very quiet with only two fishing villages and a perfect place to relax.
Mabul is only about 15 minutes by speedboat from the popular island of Sipadan. In addition, Mabul is also known for its impressive variety of marine life, making it the dream location for divers and underwater photographers. However, one does not have to go to Mabul alone to go underwater. You can also work on your tan on the beach or ride a kayak. In addition to the usual opaque kayaks, one can also rent the Molokini, a transparent kayak, which allows you to experience the underwater life below you more closely.

Mabul is known worldwide, and locally, for being a great dive site. Mabul is a true dream destination for the most spoiled diver. In addition to countless turtles, sharks, squid, blue ring octopuses and rays, you will find an extensive underwater life here. Close to the island is a beautiful coral reef with an area of two square kilometers. This coral reef has some walls of coral up to thirty meters high. It is therefore a popular destination with divers.
In addition to a beautiful coral reef, the water around Mabul Island also has a very busy aquatic life. Most dive sites are quite shallow, about 12 to 18 meters. This makes them also suitable for novice divers. The water here is a maximum of 25-30 meters deep. Visibility is approximately 5 to 8 meters at famous spots such as Froggy Lair, Paradise Reef, SeaVenture and Lobster Wall. There is also a wreck at about 18 meters depth.

Mabul also offers some of the best muck diving in the world. If you are not yet familiar with muck-diving, muck is English for sludge or mud. Simply put, it is about diving above a sandy bottom where you can play "tracker" to your heart's content. The goal: to find the strangest “alien” creatures in the sand.
A short distance away and prominently visible from the island is the Seaventures Dive Rig. This is a platform that was previously used in the oil and gas industry as an oil rig. It was decommissioned in 1985 and stationed in Singapore. It was moved to Mabul in 1997 and one can stay here. There is a busy sea life around the six legs of the oil rig.
Accommodation ranges from backpacker-style lodges to water bungalows.

The best way to get to Mabul is to fly to Tawau Airport first. Here you take a taxi from the airport to Semporna Jetty. The journey takes approximately 75 minutes. Finally, you will need to take a boat to Mabul Island which takes about 35-45 minutes depending on weather conditions.
