Resort in Sandakan

It was a very special experience. The island was peaceful and quiet, lying down in the sound of birds and waves, in hammocks with closed eyes, it was so peaceful. Unlike other beautiful islands, there is no white sand or blue sea, but I have a very special experience. I visited the village, watched some amazing fruit trees, anchovies, and dogs catching anchovies by the sea. The village is quite big and clean, with a school, a hospital, a mosque, a police station, and an infrastructure. The staff was kind and they knew lot about turtles. We were lucky enough to see two turtles that came to lay eggs at night, not everyday experience. It was also amazing to carry for eggs and release the baby turtles into the sea the first time. Where else can you experience this? I think it's a gorgeous experience that you can't buy for money. If you go to the island, it's better to avoid exposed clothes because there are so many mosquitoes and sand flies, if you don't want to suffer later it's bette...

This was a wonderful experience. Staff super friendly and made some wonderful food. Released some turtles at night but sadly missed the adult turtles due to the waves.
Tents and beds were ideal and we were lucky to be the only guests

Beautiful Sunrise. Rich with biodiversity. During low tide you can attempt to walk across barefoot to another island and imagine how our ancestors migrate to one place to another on land now are covered with seawater. Watch baby turtles swim so fast on places covered with many living growing seaweeds.
