Lankayan Island General Impression

A jewel like tiny island in the Sulu Sea, an hour and a half boat rides north of Sandakan; Lankayan has been declared part of an immense Marine Protected Area to adopt the eco-tourism concept. Unpopulated and covered by thick tropical island vegetation on its topside, this peaceful, untouched little bit of paradise is ringed by an endless pure of white sandy beach.

While the ideal destination for those who search for tranquillity and relaxation in a virgin natural setting and for families with children, Lankayan Island is also becoming one of the hottest diving destination on the map today: its dive sites - all just a few minutes away - boasting unbelievable colourful macro, fauna, fascinating wrecks and in season from March to May, regular sightings of gigantic and harmless whale sharks, the "dream date " of every diver in the world.

Situated within the Sea Turtle Corridor, Lankayan Island is also a nesting place and foraging ground for sea turtles; most commonly Green Turtle and Hawksbill Turtle. Therefore, guest will have a chance to see turtles nesting as well as new hatchlings of baby turtles released to the sea especially in season from June to September.


Lankayan Island offers some simply elegant and exquisite accommodation in all 23 wooden, roomy and perfectly appointed seafront chalets. The chalets are made out of local timbers and materials to blend into the natural surroundings and can accommodate up to three people per chalet.
