Lankayan Island Resort

Resort in Pulau Lankayan

Lankayan Island Resort is a popular spot for diving romantics that's also heavily involved in turtle conservation. There are a couple of dozen cabins dotted along the sand where the jungle meets the sea, decked out in flowing, light linens and deep tropical hardwood accents. Speedboat transfers from Sandakan are included in your accommodation.

Non-divers can snorkel the coral reef and paddle out into the big blue on kayaks.
