Of the cluster of 99 other
islands that form the Langkawi archipelago. The 3 inhabited islands are
Pulau Tuba, Pulau Rebak Besar and Pulau Rebak Kecil. The others are
mainly uninhabited, little more than rocky outcrops separated by narrow
channels with coral reefs, a diverse marine life and unusual wildlife.
Undeveloped, this island is still a
natural habitat to wildlife, on land,
under the water and in the treetops.
A mountainous island with very little lowland, the island of Pulau Tuba,
about five kilometres south of Langkawi island, is the natural habitat
for an interesting selection of wildlife. Undeveloped and undisturbed,
with barely enough space for the dirt track that surrounds the island,
it's a good place to see wildlife, up close and personal. Pulau Tuba
allows visitors to experience traditional fishing village life with
fishermen returning home in the evenings in their quaint fishing boats.
Go hiking or bird watching, or find a deserted beach or two to get a
glimpse of some elusive creatures.
Pulau Tuba is the only other island that offers accommodation but
should note there is only one place to stay - the Sunrise Beach Resort.

brings the beauty of tropical flowers through a project managed by the
Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute (MARDI),
transforming the island into a floral paradise. There are gardens shaded
by lofty trees displaying their scents and kaleidoscope of colours.
This is an island modern-day Robinson Crusoes would love to disappear
to. Forest-clad and uninhabited, there are massive ancient trees
covering the central part of the island, while coconut palms line the
beaches. It is ideal as a quiet retreat for bird-loving naturalists.
