Layang Layang is an island 300km north of the mainland, situated in very deep waters with a breathtaking drop-off outside the island’s reef.

Given its location, the ocean waters are clear and unpolluted. Deep water marine species such as hammerhead sharks visit this location and whale sharks also frequent the atoll. The corals are in pristine condition and with no fishing permitted, the fish life is abundant.
