Day 1 Kota Kinabalu – Pulau Tiga (L/D)
Depart from Kota Kinabalu approx 0745 hrs for the 2 hour overland journey to the fishing village of Kuala Penyu. The road heads South West, following the Sabah coastline, with good views of mangrove forests and sandy beaches. The sight of the old car ferry on the Penyu River signifies our arrival, and from here it is a 40 minute boat ride to the tropical island of Pulau Tiga. Famously known as the venue for the hit TV series “Survivor”, this island now offers a rather more comfortable and relaxing experience. Individual chalets provide comfortable bedrooms with private bathrooms. An adjacent restaurant supplies 3 generous meals a day, plus a limitless supply of tea, coffee and cordial drinks. After arrival on the island, it is time to check in and perhaps have a quick swim. The rest of the afternoon is free at leisure or you can take the jungle trail on your own that crosses the centre of the island to the mud “volcanoes”. At this site mud is seen to bubble up from the earth, and provides a popular spot for a full mud bath! A short run to a nearby beach provides a well needed wash. Lunch and dinner are served in the restaurant. Overnight in the chalet.
Day 2 Pulau Tiga – Kota Kinabalu (B/L)
Breakfast and buffet lunch are served in the restaurant, before departing by boat for Kuala Penyu at approx 1400 hrs. Expect to be back in Kota Kinabalu by 1700 hrs.
