Do you know that Pulau Tiga (The Survivor Island) is in Sabah?
Pulau Tiga is the largest of the three islands that make up Pulau Tiga Park, with Pulau Kalampunian Besar and Pulau Kalampunian Damit. Its beautiful landscape and pristine natural environment has attracted CBS TV Network of the USA to use this island as the main location of the popular Â‘SurvivorÂ’ Programme, dubbing it the Â‘Survivor IslandÂ’.
This island was formed through the eruption of several mud volcanoes. The last explosion happened in 1941 and since then the volcanoes have remained relatively passive although several small mud volcanoes spewing cool, mineral rich mud can still be found near the summit of the island. The notion that this mineral rich mud is good for your skin makes mud bathing a must-do activity in this island.
The islandÂ’s lush green forest serves as a soothing backdrop while the fine sand of its white beaches and the clear unpolluted water is a wonder for nature lovers. The coral reefs encircling the island invite many species of fish and other marine life to make it their home. Among the activities that can be done here include diving, non-motorised water sports, trekking, bird watching and mud bathing.
The Park Headquarters is situated on the southern side of the island, not far from Pulau Tiga Resort, the only resort facility available on the island.
