Sipadan

First off, I'll have to admit I've never actually been diving before, too expensive to get the license for me, I'll do it one day. Looking up pictures for this motivates me to go there soon.

About Sipadan:
The only oceanic island in Malaysia which rises 600 meters from the seabed, Sipadan Island is a world wonder in its own right. It is formed by living corals engulfing an extinct volcano cone which took centuries to develop. Located at the centre of the Indo-Pacific basin, Sipadan Island has one of the world’s richest marine biodiversity in its ecosystem.
Sipadan Island is actually located on the other side of borneo from where I live(Kota Kinabalu).

Now, some pictures I've lifted somewhere else, google 'Sipadan' for more. :)
