Tidung Island offers secluded beaches, clear water, starry nights and an amiable community. The Island is divided into two parts, which are called Pulau Tidung Besar and Pulau Tidung Kecil. It is only about 200 meter wide and 5 kilometer long, and is home to about 4,000 inhabitants.
Tidung waters are quite shallow, and almost overgrown with coral reefs which are in excellent condition and are teeming with a colourful collection of tropical fish and exotic sea creatures.
Tourism on Tidung island prides itself in being extremely community-based and is operated solely by the locals of the island with people’s homes that have been decorated and air-conditioned and transformed into a sort of homestay with a simple, clean and comfortable rooms. he smaller Tidung Island is for the most part, a breeding area for mangroves. The mangroves are planted once a year, and in time are destined to be part of a “mangrove tour.”
