In this island, you will expect to see hammerhead sharks, giant clams, starfish, moray eels, lemon sharks, hawksbill, whitetip sharks, barracudas, leaf scorpion fish and butter fish just to name a few. This dive site, is recommended to those who are intermediate to advance divers as you will required wall, drift and deep dives up to 40m. The best tie to dive in Layang Layang Island is between the month of March to October.

2. Sipadan Island – this is another great site for divers who are looking for adventures. Sipadan Island is rated as one of the top dive site destination in the world! How can you miss that?
