Sibu Island is a group of small islands consisting of Sibu Besar Island, Sibu Tengah Island, Sibu Kukus Island and Sibu Hujung Island. Being placed under the jurisdiction of Mersing district, Johor, Malaysia, the main island, Sibu Besar Island, has only a land size of six kilometres long and one kilometer wide with most of the area being covered with forest. Besides that, this is the only inhabited island with a small fishing village named as Kampung Duku that houses up to 40 families. Sibu Island has a massive collection of coral reefs that are untouched by human intervention. To prevent it from even happening, the island is sanctioned as a marine park back in 1993, like other protected islands in the country. As such, some of the most exciting activities that could be done here would definitely be snorkelling and diving. There are also a lot of sea caves around the island which makes it fun to go explore around by means of a boat. Jungle trekking is also a common activity that could be done by the visitors here due to the abundance of tropical vegetation and well-preserved mangrove swamps. There are four main beaches scattered at the eastern side of the island, which is also where most of the beach resorts are located. These resorts would close their doors for visitors during the three-month monsoon season.
