Make your way to the district of Kuala Penyu and hop on a boat to Pulau Tiga Park. It 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’s claim to fame is none other than being the first ever ‘secret’ location for the hit reality series, ‘Survivor’. Hence, many refer to Pulau Tiga as Survivor Island. Located just 10km offshore on the West Coast of Sabah, you can enjoy a day trip to the island but many recommend spending at least a night or two.
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 snorkeling in its surrounding clear waters or go kayaking. Divers can 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.
Inquire from your local tour operator to book your tour to Pulau Tiga Park.
