Lobster Lair is a famous dive site in Sipadan Island, named because of the numerous lobsters living in the small cracks. The wall is superb with beautiful hard and soft coral. You can also see several reef sharks in the blue and if you are lucky manta rays might just come by and say hello. It is also a great dive site for underwater macro photography with many small tiny creatures such as Seahorses, Leaf fish, Frog fish and Pipe fish!

Location based around one or many Rocks.

You can dive Lobster Lairs all year long. Access: from the Shore. See the map of Lobster Lairs on the right for the exact location.
