We stayed in Semporna on the mainland and took a boat out to Sipidan. The boat stopped at Mabul to pick up some divers that were staying there. We had a walk around Mabul and I have to say it is not the nicest island I've ever seen. There are two very expensive resorts and there is a delightfully attractive oil platform not far offshore. We walked around the island in about 15 minutes (it is very small). There is a locals village in the middle and also a 'working beach' from which the locals go out fishing - it is very dirty and unpleasant.
