Turtle Island Park

Also known in Malay as Taman Pulau Penyu, Turtle Islands Park is located within the Turtle Islands, which consists of 3 islands- Selingan, Little Bakkungan and Gulisan. The namesake island is noted for its green turtles and hawksbill turtles that would come lay their eggs on the beaches of the islands.

These islands are closest to Sandakan, and accommodation is only available on Selingan Island. If you wish to experience witnessing turtles laying their eggs, you have to stay a night in one of the chalets there.

It is suggested to visit during October when it is the peak time for the turtles to lay their eggs. The turtle conservation programme in Sabah has been one of the oldest in the world and was constructed with the most detailed statistics and research.
