Mataking is a gorgeous small island with pristine white beaches and forest. It only has the one resort with lovely large wooden beach cabins built throughout half the island. A Jacuzzi overlooks one end of the island and is a perfect placeto watch the sunset.
The island is mostly couples, divers and more couples. A spit of sand seperates Mataking from another island, that can be reached at low tide. The water is shallow and so warm, like a bath! We are only there for 2 days so get straight into the diving.
The Diving is mostly macro stuff and is quite nice but everyone keeps raving about Sipidan Island so I cant wait to dive there. A night dive is amusing, a strong current causes us to get slightly lost, then end up back at the jetty before we now it. Andrew is slightly nervous, so I pretend that Im not and its all in my stride..the fact is that I have a tendency to get lost on nightdives!
