Turtle Island Borneo

Welcome to Turtle Island

…the most fantastic experience and a privilege to only a few people. At Turtle Island you will get an unique experience and at the same time you will tribute to one of the worlds most important conservation programs for sea turtle.

The Turtle Islands Park in the Sulu Sea just north of Borneo is all about rescuing the endangered turtles in the area. Turtles threatened by the influence of the human being.

Only due to the great work of full time employed rangers from Turtle Island is there a chance of seeing these fantastic creatures in the future.

And the best part is by giving them a visit you contributes to the program and thereby to the saving of both the green and the hawksbill turtles.

A trip to Turtle Island Borneo will give you an insight to the wonderful world of sea turtles. Not only will you see the magic of the turtle laying eggs but you will also experience the hatchlings being send to the sea on their first journey ever. This beautiful little island is not just a adventure in the nature but will also be a small relaxing journey that you will never forget.

Take nothing but photos
and leave nothing but footprints…

    Hi we are travelling to sandakan in two weeks and hope to get to the island. However we are alarmed by the kidnappings in recent times especially the one in May in Sandakan. What security provisions are in place please. We will be travelling with our two children and obvious prioritise their safety. Thanks

      Hi Ethna.
      Thank you for your comment. I understand your concern especially when traveling with children. Therefor I will not guide you whether to go or not, you of course have to decide for yourself. I would listen to the guidelines from the governments and use is as input.

      Here is the UK:

      In my opinion most travelling can give some kind of concern and of course also in this case. But it is not tourists being kidnapped and it is an isolated situation and not one of many. Copenhagen and Paris is not less safe now than before terror and the same I think about going to Turtle Island. You just have to look out as you always should then not going to an all-you-can-eat-resort in Alanya but actually want to explore the world ;-)

We have been to marimari.com but they now tell us they cant get us in on the 14th but can do the 15th. As we are flying back to Kota on that day already booked we cannot do. Can you help us please

    Travelling alone, I am struggling to get a reasonable quote on the trip to turtle island. Any suggestions on where I can try. I had an email address for Crystal Quest but it bounced back, so still haven’t reached them. And contact info other than the phone number?

  • Liz says:

    Is there a trip from KK where you can do both turtle island and sun bear centre?

    How exciting!

    Thank you

    Hi there,

    I am coming on honeymoon to KK in April.
    We will be planning a trip to see turtle island and stay over one night.
    Do you know if there is a tour available that fits both The sun bear centre and turtle island?

    Thank you

    My friend and I wish to come but our embassy has advised against travel to a number of islands off eastern borneo. We assume that because it is a conservation park that travel is fine but can you please advise? Thanks

  • Dannerbauer Patrick says:

    I visited the turtle island in December 2013 with my family.It was altogether a different experience.We saw monitor lizards and on seeing it for the first time we all got scared but later on got to know that it was harmless.
    Really enjoyed my stay at the island. Keep up the great work and hope the nature here remains preserved

  • Mikael Lindberg says:

    Today it´s almost 14 years since I and my girlfriend visited Turtle Island. What an experience! I still remember it. It´s hard to describe the feeling of a young turtle in your hands – it´s strong flippers fighting for life. And still, so few survive their very first year.
    We had the chance to name “our” turtle before its release in to the ocean. The baby turtle got a fine name: Snutt. I hope that “Snutt” was one that survived – it was so strong.
    Who knows, maybe I will meet just that one turtle some day when I go diving …

    nature is shadow of supreme god……

  • Hello to all, it’s genuinely a pleasant for me to go to see
    this site, it contains priceless Information.

  • Just lovin’ this island with its wild nature and extremely friendly people. Keep up the great work and hope the nature here remains preserved. I’m also a bit baffled why there isn’t even any recycling going on in this country. One would think that it should be profitable, with so much waste.

  • Rene van Berkel says:

    Oke, super nature in glorie, nice cabi’s, nice staf. I hope you can keep this like now. There is one thing, people who uses a flah with the camera in the night while making foto of litle turtle and eggs, you haveta make a penalty beceause they don’t listenand won’t listen.

    • admin says:

      Hi Rene.
      I couldn’t agree more. That is also why it is posted on all the pages on this website. Visitors have to respect the nature and for once experience the adventure instead of getting a picture for later use. If you are sincerely present at the moment you will carry the perfect image and memory with you for ever.
      Best regards and thank you for the comment.
