Planning an Intinerary
and Fauna I Planning
Pulau Tiga The island consists of three low hills that were formed
when 'volcanoes' of mineral-rich mud were spewed out from underground.
Since the last explosion in 1941, the 'volcanoes' have remained
passive, leaving the island relatively serene. Coral fragments from
the encircling reef, make up the fine sand of its clean white beaches,
while the lush green forest is reflected in the emerald depths of
the crystal clear sea.
The islands is a sanctuary for the megapode Megapodus freycinet,
a curious chicken-like meow sound.
Trails winding through the undisturbed forest are worthwhile exploring
if you wish to glean something of its flora and fauna.
With a rest house and hostel facilities catering to a maximum of
20 persons at any one time, the island is ideal for overnight stays.
