Lankayan island reviews
Really loved this place, beautiful scenery, and the cable car is must . Saw lots of Hornbills,and many more beautiful birds. Hotel right on the beach. Heaven. more »
Perfect for 3 days. Great snorkelling from jetty. Did boat snorkel. Ask about need for wet suit (depends on whether there are jellies around). Don't be put off by army/police/coastguard presence..... more »
Just beautiful. Friendly staff and 360’ views of the ocean. Small beach and clean and comfortable environment. Diving instructor was very helpful, Australian wine to boot. Love it.
This is as close to paradise as you will get on this planet. It's also a turtle sanctuary and we were fortunate enough to see a turtle lay eggs as well as witness the hatchlings of turtles and them swimming towards the sea. Every day we would swim with turtles, tropical fishes and even baby sharks. I almost don't want to say anymore, as I fear in years to come, when the word gets out this breathtakingly beautiful island could turn into the next Maya Beach or Boracay. This truly is a special place and when we return in years to come we hope it remains unspoilt.
