    For great diving and snorkelling sites, Lankayan Island is certainly climbing to charts. To protect the marine life in this gem like island, it was declared part of Sugud Islands Marine Conservation Area (SIMCA).

    The island is not populated, which made it a paradise with all the nature’s beauty very much intact. Clear blue waters, pristine beaches and lush vegetation make such an inviting treat to your awaited holiday. March to May marked regular sightings of the gigantic gentle sea creature, whale shark. As the island is a nesting place and foraging ground of green and hawksbill turtles, guests have the chance to observe them lay the eggs and the hatchlings release to the sea.

    Lankayan is favored by couples seeking a getaway both romantic and secluded. For all the underwater richness this island hosts, this place is a divers’ haven. If either or both of these reasons apparently brought you here, make way to realize all your expectations.
