Set aside as a marine park by the government in 1985, the island is one of the few breeding grounds of the Malaysian giant leatherback turtle. Come July, the beach is thronged with tourists coming together to witness the miracle of life: the laying of her eggs. The waters are teeming with tropical fish and corals; they are so clean you may doubt that you are in the 21st century. A wide range of accommodation is available for rent. The Sibu Island Resort provides 24 comfortably furnished chalets. Basic wooden huts with communal bathrooms are also available.
