Pom Pom Island - Narcissism is Necessary

Pom Pom Island

Just got back from 5D/4N holiday on Pom Pom Island, an island in Sabah. Pretty awesome name, right?

Pom Pom Island is pretty near to Sipadan. We stayed at Celebes Beach Resort (CBR), which I highly recommend.

It’s a 3 hour flight to Tawau from KL, then airport transfers (1.5 hours van ride, Tawau – Semporna + 1 hour boat ride, Semporna – Pom Pom) were all handled by CBR. There’s no public water transport to Pom Pom, you’d need a resort to take you there and there are only two resorts on the small island of Pom Pom.

# – Crazy clear water.

This was my very first dive after Lasik, so I was understandably excited. Finally, I got to see everything clearly!

# – Group pic with diving buddies! Can you guess which one is me??

I clocked in a total of 11 dives on this trip, which included two night dives. The dive sites were amazing. The visibility was easily 20metres or more! Also hardly any current, which I love hehehe. But most of all, sharp & clear sight of everything /sniffs

# – Rejoicing over a superb dive in Mataking.

Saw loads of turtles, flute fish, coral fish, eels, rays and even a large barracuda named Charlie!

Currently suffering from island life withdrawal :(
