This may be a tiny and remote tropical island but it has more than its fair share of amazing underwater encounters. Sangalaki Dive Lodge has the only accommodation on the island, so it's the best situated resort in the region from which to enjoy all the sights without requiring long boat journeys.

Rooms: 12
Diving in: Sangalaki, Samama, Kakaban and Maratua
Dive type: Boat and beach dives
Divers: Max. 24
Sangalaki Dive Lodge, Borneo, Indonesia

First off, if you want to dive surrounded by manta rays there can be nowhere better - all year round you are more or less assured of big numbers. Then at Kakaban Lake you can swim with enormous numbers of stingless jellyfish at the famous Jellyfish Lake. The sensation of this thriving scene is out of this world.

Turtles rule the waves on Sangalaki. You can witness every stage of their life cycle: from mating, egg laying and hatching, to the first instinctive scurry of the young into their ocean home. In fact, turtles are so popular here, you can even adopt one!
