About the Location

Far-flung from the crowds with not another island in sight, Mengalum is a true hidden gem boasting powder-white sand that slopes gently into a stunning shade of turquoise. The beauty doesn’t end at the limits of land. Diving the true blue waters of Mengalum is friendly enough for both the beginner and experienced diver.

Common sightings include Stonefish doing what they do best, camouflaging, and Nudibranchs taking their sweet sluggish time, going nowhere fast. With pleasant temperatures ranging from 24°C to 27°C, scorpion fish love the balmy waters here, so do the moray eels! Though it’s hard to tear your eyes away from the richly colored reef, try spotting the resident stringrays gliding across the ocean floor with a movement similar to wings in birds. Big fish action? Nurse sharks are also often spotted hovering under shady table corals. But don’t worry, they mind their own business.

Sample Itinerary

Day 1

Mengalum Island - Scuba Dive Adventure

Rise and Shine, your pick-up awaits at the hotel lobby for a rosy day out in the wilds of Mengalum Island. ETA is before 0750hrs for registration at Sutera Harbour Jetty.

Hop on a speedboat and be whisked to away towards a wide spread of Sun, Sand and Sea! Your journey will take approximately 1Hour.

Upon arrival at the first dive site, have a short safety and dive site briefing.  Thereafter, rig up, buddy check, and dive into the clear turquoise waters!  Explore the underwater world brimming with marine life and exotic sea creatures.

Time for Surface Interval!  Packed Lunch will be served as the boat docks on Mengalum Island.  After lunch, it is free and easy to snatch a quick snooze in the shade or splash about on the beautiful white sandy shoreline.  Revel in the pristine and untouched beauty of the island.

Proceed to the second dive site for yet another exciting dive.   Keep a sharp eye out for lion fish, moray eels, scorpion fishes, and more!  Macro lovers will also see an interesting variety of nudibranchs and other tiny munchkin creatures.

At the end of your dive, resurface back to reality.  Bid farewell to the sunny splendors of Mengalum Island, time to zip back to Sutera Harbour Marina Jetty.
