A jewel-like tiny island in the Sulu Sea. One hour and a half boat ride north of Sandakan, Lankayan is soon to be declared part of an immense Marine Protected Area. Unpopulated and covered by thick tropical island vegetations on its topside, this peaceful, untouched little bit of paradise is ringed by an endless pure white sandy beach, offerings imply elegant and exquisite accommodation in a handful of wooden, roomy and perfectly appointed seafront double-occupancy chalets.

Meals are informally served at the central open building, which boasts at amazingly beautiful open-air wooden terrace, the ideal spot for after dinner relaxation and chatting, all the while admiring the dozens of juvenile blacktop sharks swimming leisurely a few feet beneath.

While the ideal destination for who search tranquility and relaxation in a virgin natural setting and for families with children, Lankayan Island is also one of the hottest diving destination on the map today: its dive sites – all just a few minutes away – boast unbelievably colorful macro fauna, fascinating wrecks and, in season from March to May, regular sightings of gigantic and harmless whale sharks, the “dream date” of every diver in the world.
