This island claims fame after being the first-ever ‘secret’ location for the international US hit reality series, ‘Survivor’. Hence, many refer to Pulau Tiga as Survivor Island.

Located just 10km offshore on the West Coast of Sabah,  this destination consists of 3 islands- Pulau Tiga, Pulau Kalampunian Besar, and Pulau Kalampunian Damit (snake island).  Pulau Tiga is the largest hence the park is named after this island.

The island has two resorts, Pulau Tiga Resort and Borneo Eagle Resort. There’s plenty to see and do here: spend the sunny days swimming or snorkelling in its surrounding clear waters or go kayaking. Divers can gear up and explore its underwater treasures (diving courses are available).

Pulau Tiga is also famous for its therapeutic natural volcanic mud. Looking for some wildlife? Say hello to the island’s famous residents: snakes! Facilities on the island include a restaurant and camping site.

To reach the island, make your way to the district of Kuala Penyu and hop on 25 minutes boat ride to Pulau Tiga Park. You can enjoy a day trip to the island but many recommend spending at least a night or two.

Inquire from your local tour operator to book your tour to Pulau Tiga Park.
