Regatta Lepa Semporna 2023

November 17, 2023 - November 19, 2023

The Regatta Lepa is a celebration that showcases the nomadic Bajau Laut community.  Semporna holds significant importance as it serves as the main gateway to Sabah’s renowned diving havens, including Mataking Island, Kapalai Island, Mabul Island, Pom Pom Island, Tun Sakaran Marine Park, and the famous Sipadan Island. The highlight of the Regatta Lepa is the enchanting floating parade of ‘lepa’ boats, adorned in vibrant colors, accompanied by the rhythmic and captivating traditional Bajau dance known as Igal-Igal.



During the events, the celebration features a range of exciting attractions such as

  • Beauty Pageant ‘Regatta Lepa Queen’ 
  • The thrilling Lepa Tug of War
