Once an island, natural forces have shaped Kapalai so that all that remains is a beautiful sand bar, perched on the Ligitan Reefs
Just 15 minutes from Sipadan, Kapalai is a total contrast, being one of the best ‘muck diving’ areas in the world. It is well known for diverse macro life, featuring rare subjects from fire, partner and sleeper gobies, dragonets, wasp or leaf fish, gurnards, sea moths, tame crocodile fish, giant frogfish of different colours, eels, rays and more – the area is a mecca for macro connoisseurs and photographers with an eye for cleverly camouflaged oddities.
