About Semporna

Semporna, on the southeastern coast of the state of Sabah in Malaysia, is a county in the Tawau District. Semporna means “perfect” in Malay. Mabul Island, an offshore island, is one of Sabah’s best-known tourist destinations. Thanks to its optimal terrain, the area is never affected by typhoons or earthquakes. The waters here are as still and exquisite as in the Garden of Eden. The pine-green sea water is so clear you can see through to the bottom. Sipadan, widely renowned as a heaven for scuba divers, draws diving enthusiasts to pilgrimage here from all over the world.
