45 minutes by boat from Semporna in the Celebes sea. Sibuan is a dream of an island, a long and narrow strip with vegetation in the middle (forest, coconut palms) and long sandy strips at both ends. On the island there is a small village of sea gipsies, stateless people with no nationality, as well as a military base at the northern end of the island. There is no accomodation on the island, all visitors arrive by boat on day trips. Sibuan is a popular destination for scuba divers who come here for diving in the azure blue waters.
