Survivor Island:

Survivor Island or Pulau Tiga Sabah or Tiga Island is one of a group of small, uninhabited islands that are situated in Kaminis Bay off the western coast of Sabah in Malaysia. These islands are relatively new and were a result of a volcanic eruption near Borneo in the year 1897.

This fact adds to the allure of the island as there are active mud volcanic cavities at the highest part of the island. You can reach these mud volcanoes by trekking through the rugged jungles of the area.

These islands are a part of the Tiga Island National Park and are well-preserved, making them a nature-lovers’ paradise. When at the island, you can swim and snorkel in the crystal-clear waters which offer abundant opportunities of spotting colourful coral in the sea bed.

The colourful under-sea creature like many types of fish also makes these waters their home, allowing you to view several types of fish when swimming in these waters. You can also relax in the volcanic mud and enjoy its therapeutic effects on your mind and body. The coastline also offers plenty of sunrise and sunset views.
