Malaysia :: TARP : Pulau Manukan & Sulug

The best dive site around this island is Mid Reef. This submerged reef consists of serveral types of hard coral, sponges and anemones. Fish life is also quite impressive with lionfish, stonefish, morays and even the rare Panda clownfish which can only be found at the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park.

Pulau Sulug
This smaller island to the south has a number of good locations around it where leopard sharks can be found. There are also trigger fish and blue ringed angelfish here. Keramat Reef is one of the prefered spots as octopi and turtles have been spotted there. An artificial reef made from tyres also lies off one of the beaches, it provides shelter for all manner of marine critters.

Pulau Mamutik
Another tiny island with a couple of good spots called South Reef and The Rock. The latter can be good for Hawksbill turtle sightings and even the rare Olive Ridley. Keep an eye out for banded sea kraits, garden eels and squid when diving around this island.
