Amazing Place in Borneo: Bohey Dulang, Semporna Sabah

Bohey Dulang Island is a mountainous island formed by the remnants of an ancient volcano.

It is separated from Bodgaya, the biggest island in Tun Sakaran Marine Park, by a shallow channel.

The crater is now flooded with seawater to form a large, majestic lagoon 25m deep.

The southern side of the lagoon is open but just below the surface is a long stretch of reef which represents the southern crater rim.

The island is best known for the breathtaking views at the top of its peak, bird watching and the Giant Clams and Marine Invertebrate Hatchery.

Bohey Dulang Island is also known for its population of Sea Gypsies, which are some of the most photographed around the marine park.
