The Pulau Tiga Marine Park gained fame as 'Survivor Island' on CBS TV network, USA TV series 'Survivor'. This is the island that the entire first season was filmed. This island was chosen due to its untouched natural landscape and marine life.
The Pulau Tiga Park covers an area of 15,864 hectares and was gazetted 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 were designated as forest reserves.
Pulau Tiga is the largest of the three islands that make up Pulau Tiga Park. This island was formed through the eruption of several volcanoes. The last explosion occured in 1941 and since then, the volcanoes have remained relatively dormant.
Several small mud volcanoes spewing cool, mineral-rich mud can still be found near the summit of the island. Believed to contain healing properties for the skin makes mud-bathing a must-do activity here. For nature lovers, Pulau Tiga's lush green jungle and fine, white-sand beaches and the crystal-clear waters are wonders to behold.
The coral reefs encircling the island is home to many species of fish and other marine life. Among the activities that await you here are diving, non-motorised water sports, trekking and bird-watching.
