Backpacking Borneo: Pulau Mamutik

After soaking up the sun at Pulau Sapi's shore, we (Kuba, Maciek, Shervin and I) once again hopped on our hired boat and headed to our second and last island for the day, Pulau Mamutik.


Pulau Mamutik beach. Reminds me of Anawangin and Nagsasa Cove.

Pulau Mamutik, though the smallest island in Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park, has complete tourist facilities: toilets, changing rooms, a cafe/restaurant, barbecue pits (barbecue buffet also offered for RM45 per person), even a camp site (overnight camping fee RM5)

You've been warned.

Admission fee is 10 MYR (which shall cover for all the islands within the national park). We already paid at Pulau Sapi so we just presented our tickets at the booth.

We spent a lazy afternoon on the island. Sherv played with his ball in the water, Kuba read his book, Maciek and I conversed with his limited English and my uber-limited German.

If you have missed the previous posts, here's how to get there.

The island's clear turquoise water.

We left at 4:00 PM, and went back to Grace Ville via bus (.80 MYR for short distances) straight after docking in main land. Dinner that night was at Grace Point with other Couchsurfers.
