About Diving in Mataking Island, Sabah

   Known as Police Bay or Bulijong Bay , this popular dive site is located towards the north of Pulau Gaya. A beautiful white sandy beach provides an excellent spot to relax after the dives around the bay. Staghorn corals are predominant at depths from 10 to 20 metres and the terrain gradually slopes to a sandy bottom. Densely populated with small reef fishes, wrasses, nudibranchs and stingrays and if you are lucky, you may spot the odd lobster scavenging for food on the sandy terrain.

Clement Reef
Towards the southwestern portion of Pulau Gaya near Pulau Sapi is Clement Reef, named after Clement Lee of Borneo Divers who first dive this site. Large table corals, staghorn corals, brain corals and encrusting sponges dominate the reef Invertebrates often observed are nudibranchs, starfish, cuttlefish and sea cucumbers, plus a mix of colourful tropical fish likes damselfish, wrasses, squirrelfish and pufferfish.
Mild currents sweep the reef, but is usually manageable for both novice and advance divers to enjoy diving in this area.

Mid Reef
Popular with most dive operators, mid reef is situated east of Pulau Manukan. The excellent coral reef makes it an ideal spot for snorkeling and scuba diving.
Mid Reef as the name suggests, is a submerged reef detached from the island. Several species of hard coral and encrusting sponges make up the reef topography. A feature of this site is the numerous patches of anemones and coral fish. You are likely to see lots of moray eels, stonefish, all sorts of crustaceans plus the cute Panda Clownfish (Amphiprion sp.) darting in and out of its host anemone. Towards the end of the year when the sea is rich with plankton, the world largest fish, the giant whale shark (Rhincodon typus), cruises by to feed on the plankton.

Getting There
Sabah is served by several international airlines with direct flights from Singapore , Hong Kong, Manila , Brunei , Seoul , Taipei and Tokyo . It is also accessible worldwide via Kuala Lumpur with Malaysia Airlines and through Singapore via Singapore Airlines. Flights to major towns in Borneo like Kuching and Miri are also served by Malaysia Airlines

    I have bought this book from Amazon.com, and I have found it quite useful for travelers, especially for backpackers.  The price of the book is reasonable with quality content. I think you should also get one for your easy reference, if you ’re planning to explore Sabah borneo.
