Libaran Turtle Island is around 40minutes boat ride from Sandakan itself. Libaran has been around for donkey years but it is not the main Turtle Island. Libaran Turtle Island as informed by the rangers has turtles nesting almost daily so you have a real high chance to see the turtles nesting in the evening. Borneo and Libaran Turtle Island is home to four species of turtles, namely the Green turtle, Hawksbill turtle, Olive ridleys and the Leatherback turtle.

During this two day one night trip to Libaran Turtle Island you will get to experience the releasing of the turtles into the sea in the afternoon and at evening see the turtles depositing it eggs. You will stay in a dorm type camp. This trip is great for travelers on a budget.
