The Derawan Islands are located in the western part of the Celebes Sea (also known as the Sulawesi Sea or Laut Sulawesi) off the coast of East Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. The archipelago of 31 islands includes Derawan, Kakaban, Maratua and Sangalaki, each of which boast unique dive sites that are truly world class.

In fact the Derawan islands are a biodiversity hotspot featuring 872 species of reef fish, 507 species of coral, along with 5 different giant clam species, 2 sea turtle species and coconut crabs. It is the largest turtle nesting site in Indonesia.

There are a small number of resorts now established, mostly on the island of Derawan, catering to divers and dive liveaboards occasionally visit from Northern Sulawesi to the east or the Malaysian state of Sabah to the north.

Difficult to get to, diving the Derawan Island remains a frontier location for determined divers looking for some of the most exhilarating diving in the world, including an extraordinary “jellyfish” lake packed with non-stinging jellyfish, and a manta cleaning station. The calm waters around Derawan, however, make it suitable for relatively novice divers too.
