Pom Pom is a small Malaysian island in the Celebes sea, located 30km east of Semporna. Pom Pom is relatively flat, measures 600m x 900m, is bordered by white sand beaches and is surrounded by crystal clear sea waters. The only available accomodation is a big high-end resort with its own dive centre. For non-resort guests, Pom Pom is accessible by boat from Semporna (45 minutes by speedboat). It is for instance possible to take a daytrip with one of the dive operators in Semporna. The beaches on Pom Pom are very nice, but the seawater is quite shallow. At low tide it is impossible to swim on the eastern side of Pom Pom due to the coral rocks (rubber shoes would be necessary to walk thro˙gh the corals to reach deeper waters).
