Mabul is a small oval shaped island just south of Semporna often used as a divebase to the more popular Sipadan Island. There is a thirty minutes pathway around the island that crosses a local Bajau village, where you can still experience a bit of the traditional way of living. There are a few basic accommodations on the island (Sipadan Water Village and Sipadan-Mabul Resort) and there is a small transformed oilrig nearby named Sea Venture Dive Resort. Besides diving, snorkeling, excellent seafood dining and beaching there is not much to do on Mabul.

Diving around Mabul is completely different from Sipadan. It is mainly shallow flat but brilliant coral dives that are teeming with all sorts of life. It is the colors and diversity of colorful critters that make diving here worthwhile. Its turquoise waters, white sand and sloping fringe reefs are some of the best conditions for making pictures, videos and have made Mabul the best muck diving destinations in Malaysia. Some of the species you might spot are exotic creatures such as seahorses, blue ringed octopus, mandarin fish, ribbon eels, spike-fin goby, snake eels, crocodile fish, frogfish and pipefish. Visibilities are often slightly less than on the other nearby islands but for muck diving this is not a problem and they still often exceed twenty meter.
