With its sparkling white sand, mesmerizing blue waters and topclass resort, Mataking Island is the ideal getaway for both the avid diver and nondiver. Divers can gear up and explore the Lobsters Lair, Nudibranch Heaven, Garden of Eden, Magic Rock, House Reef, Mataking Wreck and D'wall.
Nondiving activities include a luxurious pampering experience at Jamu Spa, batik painting, kayaking, canoeing and jungletrekking to name a few. A mustdo during your time in Mataking is to take a leisurely walk to Pulau Mataking Kecil (literally meaning Small Mataking island) which is a 20minute walk from the main island.
The best time to take this walk is in the morning when the tides are low, allowing you to walk on a sandy stretch that leads directly to the smaller island. With the sea surrounding you on both sides, you will feel almost as if you are walking on water!
When you arrive back on the main island, climb up the wooden observation tower to get a breathtaking view of Mataking and its surrounding areas. Catch a glimpse of Mataking's famous ‘Underwater Post Office', the first of its kind in Malaysia.
