Mataking Island is very beautiful. Water is so clear and there are many fishes around. The resort is perfect and people are nice. The resort has 7 quotas everyday to go to Sipadan Island. It’s good for divers and also families.

For the beach lovers, this is the perfect island to visit. You can get boat from the main jetty in Semporna which you booked earlier. You will be provided with lunch set and some junk food. Heavenly nice island.

Beautiful location with great diving. Chalet A/C was terribly inadequate and needed more water Stations considering the heat.
