Bring a camera and dive into the exotic world of Sipadan National Park, famous for its diversity of marine life. Exploring the reef is sure to be a memorable experience, but be sure to pick up a permit first, as the number of divers is restricted each day. Once in the water, look out for humphead fish, barracuda, and giant turtles. With a little luck, you might even run into a gigantic whale shark. The ocean bed is abundant with vibrant coral and other marine life, making it the perfect setting for macro photography.
