Diving at Layang Layang

Scuba diving is of course the main reason that people visit Layang Layang Island Resort and shark enthusiasts are in for a real treat between April and May when schools of hammerheads make their way through the area for the mating season. Also to be seen are a number of other pelagic species and some macro life too.
