Arguably one of the most attractive islands off the east coast of Borneo and accessed from Semporna, Mataking is the ultimate island paradise.

On this private island the Reef Dive Resort provides comfortable and relaxed accommodation, a superb retreat from the adventure of the rainforest. All 32 beach chalets are air conditioned and furnished with four poster beds, and all have spacious balconies looking out over the Celebes Sea.

Artificial reef

Crystal clear waters, rich in both macro and pelagic life, surround the small island and are home to an underwater post office, a ship sunk in 2006 to create an artificial reef and a new conservation initiative to promote coral growth: reef balls.

The island is never crowded, and if you can tear yourself away from the gorgeous beaches, the resort spa offers pampering alternatives. it is an eco-friendly resort which is a great option for both divers and those who simply wish to relax.
