Malaysia :: Sipadan : The Drop Off

The drop off is probably one of Sipadan's most famous dive sites, it is also rated in the top five beach dives of the world! Just ten meters from the beach the abyss drops down to over 600 meters deep. The wall is covered in many varieties of coral and some big pelagics often visit the area, keep a lookout for grey reef sharks in the deep blues. There will undoubtedly be huge schools of jacks circling above you, a truly magical sight on this fantastic wall of marine life. This spot is also popular for night dives where huge bumphead parrotfish can be seen sleeping on the wall.
