Lankayan Island 
Lankayan 島處於 Sulu 海內, 山打根西北面的美麗小島. 擁有細白沙灘. 島上的 Lankyan Island Dive Resort 於 1997 年建成後, 吸引了更多潛水人士到來探勝. 這裡有 40 個潛水點, 其中 " Lankayan Wreck " 是一艘在原址非法捕魚郤沉沒了的遠洋漁船. 現棲身了無數不同品種的海洋生物, 如玻璃魚, Harlequin Ghost Pipefish, 琵琶魚, Bumphead Parrotfish,石班魚, 魔鬼魚, 海馬, Flying Gurnards, 墨魚, Jawfish, Dragonets, Sand Divers, 玳瑁, 綠海龜. 

A jewel- like tiny island in the Sulu Sea and hour and a half boat ride's north of Sandakan, Lakayan is soon to be declared part of an immense Marine Protected Area. Unpopulated and covered by think tropical island vegetation on its topside, this peaceful, untouched tittle bit of paradise is ringed by an endless pure white sandy beach, offering simply 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 blacktip 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, Lakayan 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.
