SABAH: Layang-Layang: Isolation guaranteed

Layang-Layang: Isolation guaranteed

Malaysia islands

Would you call this an island? Layang-Layang’s isolation makes it one of Asia’s best diving experiences.

Little more than a coral reef with a runway, the tiny island of Layang-Layang is located some 300 kilometers northwest of the Sabah capital of Kota Kinabalu (KK), the state to which it belongs.

A creation of the Malaysian Navy, which reclaimed land from the sea in order to state the nation’s sovereignty over the Spratlys, that South China Sea island group also claimed whole or in part by China, Taiwan, Vietnam and the Philippines.
