Pulau Sibu

Closest to the mainland, PULAU SIBU is actually a cluster of four islands which are collectively the most popular after Tioman. Most resorts are on Pulau Sibu Besar which, although not as scenically interesting as some of its neighbours, does have butterflies and huge monitor lizards. The sand here is yellower and the current more turbulent than at some others; most of the coves have good offshore coral.
