Mabul, a 20-hectare island with land surfaces 2 to 3 meters above sea level, is popular to divers as it is 15-km away from Sipadan, the diving paradise. Mabul is surrounded by sandy beaches, which is perched on the northwest corner of a 2 square kilometer reef! Since 1970s, the island housed 2 fishing villages of Kampung Mabul (Mabul Village) and Kampung Musu (Musu Village). There are about 2000 villagers living in Mabul that are mainly Bajau Laut and Suluk Muslims who live a nomadic lifestyle. In 1992, Sipadan Mabul Resort purchased the southern part of Mabul Island to transform it as a diving paradise for tourism. Sipadan Mabul Resort is accorded as 4-Star Resort and a member of PADI and NAUI PRO GOLD Dive Resort!
Mabul is well known for MUCK Diving! Muck is a perfect habitat for unusual, exotic and juvenile organisms that make their homes in the sediment.
