Most of you probably already well known about Sipadan island, a world class dive site in the world, but here I’m not talking about Sipadan.. Behold! a new star is born! Pom Pom island. The island situated somewhere near to Mataking island of the Celebes sea.
How to get here? You need to fly to Tawau (TWU) via Kota Kinabalu (BKI) or Kuala Lumpur (KUL) and when you arrive in Tawau airport the Resort of Pom Pom Island will arrange you the pick up to transfer you by a comfortable coach to the fishing town of Semporna.
For self traveller, you can take a journey to Tawau town by air-conditioned bus from Kota Kinabalu, at Inanam Tung Ma Bus station. The fare will cost you around RM50 with 8 hours journey. And later from Semporna jetty you will board a speedboat which will bring you to Pom Pom Island in only about 45 minutes.
The resort consists of 18 Beach Chalets and 26 Garden Villas.
and 12 individual Jungle Lodge which are now still under construction
All chalets and villas are made with wood and bamboo and added a touch of style of local traditional architecture.
There are also 32 Water Cottages built on Pom Pom island and still under fast construction.
This how the Twin chalet looks like.
while this a Queen chalet
There are fresh R.O water available on every rooms, tea and coffe making facilities and whats hot!! Internet WiFi available…
For those Non diver they can just relax and enjoyed the macnificent view.
and for those Diver geek, Pom Pom island is like a heaven’s waiting.. This are the Clownfish or anemonefish.
Turtles.. I think its a Hawksbill Turtle
the sea rich of macnificent marine fishes.
this one was my favourite.. Scorpionfish merely the same as Lionfish. It is beautiful but it’s a venomous species.
It’s a beauty isn’t it..
