Pulau Tiga Park is located north of Kuala Penyu, opposite the swampy Klias Peninsula. The island became famous when it was used as the location for the first Survivor reality TV series. Accessed via a 40 minute boat ride from Kuala Penyu jetty, which in turn is a 2 hour minute drive from Kota Kinabalu, Pulau Tiga has interesting flora and fauna, nice beaches and a rich marine life that offers good snorkeling and diving opportunities. The island also has a few mud volcanoes which are popular recreational spots for visitors. There are a number of nature trails on the island, each offering different trekking experiences in terms of views, flora, fauna and trail difficulty. A short distance northeast of Pulau Tiga is Pulau Kalampunian Damit, a breeding ground for a species of sea snake called the banded sea krait. Kalampunian Damit attracts these snakes in huge numbers and not surprisingly is better known as Snake Island.
