Mantabuan 万达湾岛

Situated about 15min boat ride to the north east from Pom-pom Island, there is a beautiful and untouched island, Mantabuan. It was well protected by Sabah Marine Park Department, hence any visitor into this area is required to apply permit for entrance. Normally, unlike Sipadan in which the permit is very difficult to acquire, Mantabuan required only one day earlier to apply the permit. Besides that, it will definitely be cheaper than Sipadan.  The reefs around it, is filled with surprises that only those in it will find the treasures.

This day we brought a group of fun loving guests to this beautiful island, exploring the Scuba dive for the first time. Lucky them to have try diving for the first time in such a wonderful reef.  Just like how they described to me, it is like falling into a big aquarium. In fact the dive site they went is called aquarium.

We hope that more people will come to know this beautiful island and enjoy the stunning under water world in it.

我们带了一群充满欢乐,带着美丽笑容的朋友们到这个还不那么出名的小岛,发掘它的珍贵。在我说这个岛还没在中国出名,还没有中文名时,他们说笑的说给它取名为“万达湾”。之后我在网站上找到另一个名字叫“曼达布安”。说实在,我比较喜欢“万达湾”,你说呢?

这个小岛是我们沙巴海洋局负责保护的,所以所有人要到这岛上的都必须申请准证。它也像希巴丹一样,是属于我们沙巴的海洋公园之一。不一样的是,希巴丹岛由于出名了,申请准证很困难。万达湾的准证只需一天前申请就能拿到。

许多游客跟我说,听过马达京,听过卡巴莱,听过马布岛,但没听过Mantabuan。就因为没听过,证明了它有多原始,还没太多的游客踏足此海。被我说服了来到这里的游客们没一个不叹为观止。这里的珊瑚礁充满了惊喜。我们潜员们把此处称为珊瑚丛林。一大片一大片的珊瑚礁,岁数可达几百年以上的珊瑚,巨大可大过一个十人圆形大桌。当然的,有了那么漂亮的珊瑚,这里成了鱼群的天堂。若要拍壮观的海底世界照片,此海成了必行之处。

我们希望带更多的游客来发掘这个美丽的小岛,让更多人看见它的奇妙。若您来到邦邦岛,记得参与此行。
