Welcome to Semporna

You won't be using up your camera's memory card in the town of Semporna, which, except for its mosque, is not immediately captivating. There's a trash-strewn wet market and some pretty stilted, over-the-water hotels, but little reason to extend a stay beyond dumping your bags and chatting with dive-company staff – they'll soon have you salivating over the archipelago.
