- Sipadan Island, Mabul Island and Kapalai Islands.
Located at Sabah, Malaysia. When it comes to Sabah’s islands, the first things you can imagine in your mind is how clear the seawater and sightseeing of the fish and the underwater life swimming without you diving or entering the sea at all. If you ever come there and want to try the scuba diving activity there, you also can rent the on sea house where the sea is just upon your own eyes and you can swim there anytime you want. You have to ride a boat in order to reach the on sea house and experience all of that.
- Redang Island
While the previous island is located at Sabah, this one is located at the east coast of Malaysia, Terengganu. Even though it’s quite popular and famous amongst the divers, you can never do the activity at the end of the year because it is a monsoon season out there. You can never do any activity related to the seawater because it will cost your own life.
