Sabah as a destination is great for diving and you always hear Sipadan, Mabul, Kapalai, Lankayan, Layang Layang, etc.

And then when people mention the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park just in front of Kota Kinabalu city, divers scowl and thumb their noses at it.

Trust be told, the TAR Park is a treasure hidden in plain sight and people visiting (and living, for that matter), in Kota Kinabalu really should take more advantage of this great diving destination minutes away from their doorstep.
