The only oceanic island in Malaysia which rises 600 meters from the seabed, Sipadan Island is a world wonder in its own right. It is formed by living corals engulfing an extinct volcano cone which took centuries to develop. Located at the centre of the Indo-Pacific basin, Sipadan Island has one of the world’s richest marine biodiversity in its ecosystem.

Emerging from 222 participating countries, Sipadan Island has been nominated as one of the 261 qualified national and multinational nominees.

Your votes will decide which of these nominees will make it to the top 77 in each group category.

Sipadan is Top 77

Sipadan finished at top 77 in the search for the New 7 Wonders of Nature after an announcement made by the New7Wonders Foundation in Zurich today. Sipadan was the sole Malaysian entry in the search with 430 nominations from 224 different countries under the island category. The Foundation’s panel of experts led by Professor Frederico Mayor, former UNESCO Director-General through an extensive process then reduced the list down to 28 nominations for the final phase of voting. Although not in the Top 28, Sipadan is listed in the 'reserve list' according to the New7Wonders website.

Sabah Tourism appreciates all the efforts by our partners such as the tour operators and hotels to working professionals as well as the media for generating the awareness throughout the campaign.

Once again, thank YOU for supporting Sipadan.
