Survivor Island didn’t get its name out of no where. Pulau Tiga was essentially unfamiliar to many, until it became a household place name in America, much thanks to the highly successful TV Series, “Survivor”. Formed by an epic volcanic eruption over a hundred years ago, the name when translated
means ‘Three’, inspired by the three undulating humps visible from a distance when approaching the island.
This slice of paradise is open for discovery and stay. The accommodations provided boasts a relaxed chalet style, a far cry from the accommodation filmed and experience by the “Survivor” participants.
The Pulau Tiga Park sits poised north of Kuala Penyu, covering an area of 158 square km and was gazzete as a National Park in 1978.
As far back as 1933, the main island, together with the two smaller islands of Kalampunian Besar and Kalampunian Damit (better known as Snake Island) were designated as Forest Reserve. Sabah Parks maintains a number of trails through the forest, one of them leading to the intriguing mud "volcanoes", where mineral-rich mud and gas slowly bubble up from deep underground. The island is also known for its shy megapodes, chicken-sized birds which lay their eggs in the sand and leave the sun to incubate them.
