Tour Details

Sipadan-Kapalai Dive Resort is definitely one of the most scenic island resort in Borneo. The wooden resort with spacious bungalows is built on stilts over the Celebes Sea, on the top of a sunken island.

Kapalai Island is the perfect destination for scuba divers, in fact it’s ideally located just 15 km off the famous Sipadan Island, known to be one of the top ten dive sites in the world.

  • Dive into the sparkling waters of the Celebes Sea and explore the dive sites around Sipadan Island – a marine paradise renowned among divers for its rich underwater biodiversity
  • Discover Kapalai‘s overwater bungalows. Though Kapalai is called an island it is actually a big sandbar in the middle of the Celebes Sea, with no land in sight.

  • Relax, unwind and escape the hustle and bustle of today’s busy life
