Go snorkelling in one of the most beautiful islands in Malaysia, and explore the amazing marine life in Mabul Island!
Mabul Island is a small island off the coast of Sabah, Malaysia that consistently ranks as one of the most beautiful islands in Malaysia. With crystal clear turquoise waters and arguably one of the richest single destinations for exotic small marine life anywhere in the world, it is definitely a haven for divers and holiday-goers alike. The island is also home to the ‘Bajau Laut Village’, home to the famous ‘Sea Gypsies’, who are known for their nomadic, seafaring way of life, living mostly in houseboats or wooden stilt houses built over the ocean!
