Drunk in Madin, watching the sea in Semporna ~
To say which sea in Malaysia is the best, I will not hesitate to introduce you to Semporna. There is a mint-colored sea that will be planted at a glance. There is a segregated "sea gypsies", and there are the world's top ten diving sites - Spartan, which is like a sea of God's eccentricity. Among the many islands, I want to introduce you to Madin.
Distance: 45 minutes boat trip
Highlights: Submarine mailbox, sea in the sand
Machine Island, is the underwater photography base for underwater photographers. There is a magnificent view that can't be finished, and there is a magical underwater mailbox on Little Madonna Island, you can send a letter to yourself (only AOW diving card can be here).
Mokinok Island will have a long sea beach in the two islands at low tide (only tourists who live on the island can go to ), divide the island into two, divided into Da Ma Jing and Xiao Ma Jing .
Photography paradise, where you can not only take a variety of beautiful photos on the beautiful islands and beaches, but also take a small plane to take aerial photography, even if you can take your water. Under the camera to fear the wonderful world of Madinna underwater. Is there a more enjoyable photography paradise than this?
Madin | The best private island resort in Semporna
is very small, the most famous are the four islands of Kapalai, Mabul Island, Madin, and Bang Bang Island. The water house in Kapalai has undoubtedly become a net red water house, which needs to be booked half a year in advance. Mabu Island's MWB has also been recommended before, and the rest is Madin, although there is no water house, but strong Amway.
Motojing is far from the town of Sempor, and it takes about an hour to take the speedboat. One island and one hotel, the privacy is very strong. The island is full of vegetation, no water house, only wooden houses with sea and garden views. We booked a high-rise wooden house by the sea, great! The balcony is facing the sea, you can go snorkeling when you go out (as long as the islander can snorkel infinitely every day), this time there is no water completely because the finger stitches can't touch the water, although it is a pity, but sleep every day and wake up naturally. The photo is also very happy, not at all bored! Lying on the sun loungers on the balcony, you can enjoy the sunset... Of course, I heard that Madins accommodation is also the best of the four islands. It has been proved afterwards. In addition to being the best choice for deep dive, Madang Island has a famous trailing beach. Regarding trailing beaches, the best shooting time is forecast between 2:30 and 3 pm. Because when we went to two o'clock, there was still some dryness. The beach area was not covered by sea water. At 3:30, the ocean area was large, the beaches were covered by sea water, and the seawater on the beach might go to the knees.
Price: 4,500, three days and two nights a person (three meals a day, two bottles of water a day).
Go to the Semporna Undersea Post Office to send postcards
as one of the five underwater post offices in the world. The submarine post office of Semporna Madinal is only 3 minutes away from the Madinat Resort. The post office is at the bow of the shipwreck, and there is a fixed time every week for people to collect.
Postcards can be bought at the front desk of Madin Resort, 4 MYR, 2 MYR for China stamps, the front desk staff will help you to seal up, you can dive to the bottom of the sea to deliver La. The depth of the
wreck is about 27-30 meters, so you need an AOW diving certificate to get there, and there are a lot of poisonous lionfish next to the mail box, so don't touch it.
Even if you don't have a diving certificate, you can entrust the instructor of the diving center to help you to send it underwater. I believe that the person receiving it will be pleasantly surprised.
We went to sneak that day the water temperature was 29 degrees, very warm and very comfortable, no wet clothes, the direct jellyfish clothes went down. This dive site is not a lot of fish in addition to the post office, but it is a very special experience!
Semporna Madang Island is famous for its beautiful Maldives. It consists of the Big Island and the small island of Madonna.
The power of the sea in Mading Island is amazingly high, the corals are crowded and the protection is very good. In addition, the turtles are also frequent visitors here, even in the shallows.
The trailing beach on Madian Island is a great beauty of Semporna and can only be seen when the tide recedes. Here, in addition to the strong UV, you need high-powered sun protection, just like being in the sky!
Mataking Island is actually made of two smaller islands, Pulau Mataking and Pulau Mataking Kechil. At low tide, they are connected by a strip of white sand beach. The larger of the two islands has many lovely resorts. The architectural style is primarily traditional Malaysian designs. This quiet island is ideal for a leisurely vacation. Mataking's waters are rich in marine resources. The east coast slopes off into hundreds of meters of coral reef, the west is a wall of coral, all sorts of brightly colored and fast-swimming fish, large and small, can be seen here. This is a true diver's paradise.
