"Turtle Island Park" Pulau Selingan by sim1

Pulau Selingan Travel Guide: 57 reviews and 75 photos

This is a chapter in my wonderful roundtrip and honeymoon on Sabah. Turtle Islands Park was wonderful! It was my first time snorkelling, hahaha, and yes, this water is salt! At the first dive I had the first gulp of salt water :-)) But it was great to take a look at the beautiful 'Under Water World'.

I also had the amazing experience to see a big Green Turtle lay eggs on the beach at night, hold a little baby turtle and release dozens of baby turtles back to the sea.

    Wow, the little turtle is really cute! Nobody would believe it will become so large when an adult! Superb underwater pictures! The turtle tracks are impressive and you must know they were made by turtles!

    Sand flies?? What's that? How could it be you cannot resist on the beach?

    A very interesting page on Turtle Island. It sounds like so much fun, seeing the turtles come ashore. I will put this on my must do list.
