Welcome to Layang Layang
This turquoise-haloed coral atoll, 300km northwest of KK, is actually artificial, constructed for the Malaysian Navy and debated among scubaholics as one of the top-10 dive sites in the world. However, what lies beneath what is now an exclusive diving resort could only have been created by nature: Technicolor reefs teeming with gorgonian fans, excellent visibility and impossibly steep walls down to 2000m. Beyond the macro fish found in its 20m-deep lagoon – seahorses, pipefish, cuttlefish and batfish – large pelagics to the outer walls include hammerhead, grey reef, leopard, thresher, silvertip and whale sharks, as well as orcas, dolphins, mantas and devil rays.
