SWV Resort Welcome you back to our blog!

Weather for the past few weeks was good eventhough sometimes raining and visibility also good in Sipadan and Mabul. There is a few photos of Sipadan Water Village Resort with a good view in the early morning, after rain with rainbow and evening time with fullmoon.

See clearly the photo actually there is double rainbow in the sky above SWV Resort which can be see in the early morning after rain.

Beautiful fullmoon evening just right above the chalet.

Paradise 1 house reef is one of the great dive site just right in front of our dive centre. Usually if you are 1st time comer in our resort, you will have chance to explore the Paradise 1 guided by our divemaster. After that, you can explore the Paradise 1 or 2 by yourself during your self dive.Paradise 1 have a few resident huge green turtle (Chelonia mydas) and Great Barracuda (Sphyraena barracuda) named Alex Jr.

Great Barracuda is fearsome looking and solitary predator commonly found in the shallow reef. Usually has a few scattered dark blothces. The Alex Jr. - resident Great Barracuda is about 1m in length. The Great Barracuda is the top predator of reefs and feeds on variety of fishes, cephalopods and shrimps. They rarely attack humans, but they attracted to shining or reflective objects such as ring or ear rings because look like the silvery fishes.

The macro life in Mabul and Kapalai is fascinating and fabulous with high variety in colour, shape and diversity.
Sipadan dive is amazing with school of Barracuda, Jack fish, many turtles and sharks.
