Now that superyachts have been given the green light to visit Borneo, it should definitely be on your bucket list of off the beaten track destinations.

Though there are a number of convenient anchorages offshore, the best marina for superyachts is at the Sutera Harbour Resort — its deep water 104-berth marina can accommodate yachts up to 54 metres and offers year round protection from extreme weather. The marina clubhouse is luxurious with a range of facilities, including a movie theatre, fitness centre, tennis courts, swimming pool and children’s club.

Divers will want to head to the eastern side of this enormous island to anchor off Mabul, as the strict rules state that you must stay a mile off nearby Sipadan Island. As divers have to use local dive operators, tender over to the Sipadan Kapalai Dive Resort in order to see turtles, bumphead parrotfish, barracudas, manta rays, sharks and a huge range of ocean life.

At the north eastern end of the island lies the Kinabatangan River and yachts with a draught measuring up to seven metres can travel down it with a permit. You can hope to see the Borneo pygmy elephants, orang-utans, crocodiles, kingfishers within the huge variety of wildlife.
