New Dive Operator In Town - Celebes Beach Resort, Pom Pom Island, Sabah Part 1

Post Number:#1  Postby toodus » Mon Aug 15, 2011 2:57 pm

A year ago, a new dive centre and resort started operations on the island of Pom Pom nearby Mataking Island. They're called Celebes Beach Resort (www.celebescuba.com) and I've been  there twice now partly because

1. The resort is new
2. The entire island is shared with one other resort - Pom Pom Island Resort. So you get absolute peace there.
3. Hot shower, aircond and spacious accomodation
4. Excellent underwater visibilty
5. Same boat ride distance to Mabul
6. Friendly and accomodating staff
7. Virgin dive sites
8. Unlimited shore dives
9. The resort is in between a homestay and luxurious resort in terms of pricing and atmosphere.
10. Turtles laying eggs at night
11. Frogfish, leaffish, sea snake, mandarin fish, morays, nudis, bumpheads, baraccudas
Note:  I am not the owner of Celebes Beach Resort nor a shareholder. I just came back a week ago from CBR and a report's a report.
Here are the pictures :

My favourite part of CBR. This is where I do my unlimited shore dives. The slope.

What a view

Taking a stroll at night, I encountered a turtle laying her eggs 3 minutes away from the resort. Once in a lifetime experience.
