Beaches in Malaysia from Tawau

Hi all, we are planning on diving for a few days in Mabul but we then have a few days after before we need to head back to KL.

My question is whether there are any beaches within a short travelling time to chill out for a bit (happy to take a short flight from Tawau but not sure a) where to head and b) whether we can fly direct).

Hi KL163,

You can visit Mataking or Pom Pom Island, but you'll need to pre-book your stay with the resorts before hand.

They are locatd near to Mabul, you'll be taking a boat from Semporna to get to these 2 resort.
