Pulau Sipadan is a remote, small, 10 ha isolated island off the coast of S.E. Sabah in Borneo.
Sipadan is covered in the original dense forest whilst most of the surrounding Semporna islands have been converted into coconut plantations where large fig trees are rare.
Nearly all the vegetation on Sipadan originally arrived by sea or bird dispersal so it is quite different from the vegetation of the Bornean mainland.

Ficus crassiramea can be recognized from the large pink stipules when growing new leaves.
