One on the bucket list checked off. Layang Layang didn’t disappoint with so much to see - mantas, schools of jacks, trevally, barracuda, bumpheads plus sharks- black tip, grey reef and the majestic hammerheads. Great diving and great dive operator. Shout out to Roy who found the hammers every morning. As mentioned in several other posts, its best to have abit more dive experience before you do Layang Layang. Past the drop off, its 2000ft of blue below you and with such good viz, its easy to to forget your depth and go into deco. So stay safe and listen to the divemaster!
The resort itself was well run with good food including a Malaysian styled sit-down dinner on one of the nights - a lovely experience. Accommodation was 3-star with air conditioned, hot shower, good bed and basic bath amenities. The staff were what makes the resort great - they are friendly, attentive and a fun bunch. Wifi isn’t good but I opine its a good digital detox and just focus on the diving! More
