A fun day trip to where the TV show "Survivor" was filmed for the very first season. We took the short hike up to a "mud volcano"!

This was one of the places we stayed for two nights as part of our Borneo Experience. I absolutely loved it. It is very remote place. Not many people around which we loved. For us after several days of hiking it was the perfect place...More

We booked this trip hoping for some unspoiled nature and some snakes and snorkelling. The trip was quite well organized and the boat sufficiently comfortable. We reached snake island after 30 minutes. It is really a tiny place.. looking for snakes took some 5 minutes...More

This was a fantastic island to visit. Lots of monkeys and monitor lizards to see. The snorkling was great and water clear. Bbq lunch was very nice. Beautiful beaches. Only downside is the 1.5hr boat ride out and back.

The island is nice. The beaches are nice. The water is clean and warm. Lots of minke and lizards. Nothing here though that indicates Survivor was filmed here.

I just love my stay at this place. The food was excellent and the staff so so friendly. I was particularly impressed with the dive school team who directed me to excellent snorkelling a short walk from the resort

Went there for a night in early Dec17. Lots of mosquitoes, rain (although the island can't be held responsible for that) and monkeys. Absolutely disappointing. The beaches were full of trash as well.
