Dive Layang Layang Island
If you're the type of diver who loves underwater explorations, especially of the poking your nose (or camera) into crevices, fissures and gullies variety, then the Runway is a "must do" for you.
Here, you'll find fish swimming vertically along the vertical walls. It's quite an experience watching jacks, surgeonfish and fusiliers cascade down these walls, definitely something not to be missed.
Out in the blue, swirling schools of shad create glittering balls of silver, attracting hungry tuna and grey reef sharks on the look out for a free meal. Sometimes you can sense the panic of the fish, as they scatter at lightening speed, in anticipation of a pelagic strike.
Occasional sightings of hammerhead sharks and manta rays cruising the waters around this Layang Layang scuba diving site have also been reported, so keep a sharp eye out for them.
