This program is suited to the avid diver and non diver alike and provides an idilic setting for turtle and orang utan sightings.

Lankayan Island, located within the Sulu Sea, 80km off the northeast coast of Sabah, Borneo takes Eco Tourism to another level.

Comprising 20 luxury-detached chalets, each on the beach with balconies over looking the ocean, open air buffet style restaurant, dive station, turtle hatchery and conservation centre, the resort oozes peace and tranquillity.

Dive with Turtles in the TAR ParkSnorkel and scuba dive with turtles, with the possibility of seeing turtles laying eggs and clutches of eggs hatching.

Unlike neighboring Turtle Island, Lankayan Island is small and only accommodates small numbers of people.
