Great place. More top spots should limit the number of divers. Stayed at Mabul resort. Did the turtle cave with David – AWESOME and just a little scary, but unusual experience. Muck diving around Mabul really good too, and night dive on house reef truly fabulous – the best to date with a group of 8 mandarin fish right at the drop in. – said Chris, a scuba diver in 2011.
