Mamutik Island

On week-days, the island is practically deserted and visitors can enjoy the island’s beaches in privacy. Pulau Mamutik has many shelters erected by the park authorities for visitors and it has fresh water from a well. It has a jetty, a three bedroom rest house for rent and staff quarters for the Rangers stationed there. Facilities include changing rooms, toilets, picnic shelters, tables and barbecue pits. Fresh water and electricity are available.

Mamutik would be an ideal venue to get away from it all. The corals to the north-eastern tip of the island are quite interesting. The beach is rocky and swimmers must be careful of sea urchins that exist in large numbers beside the corals and rocks. Facing Tanjung Aru Beach Hotel, the beach to the right of the jetty would be a good place for those who are not every good swimmers.

The trail around the island is easy and pleasant and it can be completed in twenty minutes.

    i went to mamutik island early this year…
    there’s no resort/hotel so you have to resort to camping..
    i slept in tent..when i went there, it was a bit windy…
    so we had to move our tents several time to find a good spot..
    i’ll check with my friend whether you can rent a tent there.
