Snorkelling on the islands

We are not divers, but adore snorkelling.Sipadan Water Village looks very nice, does anyone know if we can snorkel straight off the beach? Or recommend another island resort that maybe better? Many thanks

Unfortunately you can't stay on Sipadan island anymore as the goverment is trying to protect the habitat around that area.

In fact, you need a permit to dive/ enter the island - which is very hard to get.

I just came back from Kapalai resort (Aug 08) and I'm not a diver, the people at the resort to me it's impossible for me to go snorkelling in Sipadan - which was a shame as I was really looking forward to is... I wish they have told me that before I went!

I've written a review on Kapalai resort, it's still pending on tripadvisor~ should be up in a few days. You can read about my experience then.

Will also upload some photos once I've sorted them out.
