Pulau Selingan Travel Guide: 57 reviews and 75 photos

Before the eastcoast of Sabah, at 40 kilometres from Sandakan, you will find the Turtle Islands. A protected area in the Sulu Sea that concludes 8 little islands. Pulau Selingan is the most famous of these islands and the only island where you can sleep.

During a stay overnight at the island you can see the turtles come on land to lay their eggs, see them being breeded and see the young turtles get out into the big sea.
