Pulau Sibu Things to Do

  • Snorkeling / Diving

    The diving and snorkeling in the clear waters off Pualu Sibu is excellent. On our snorkeling trip we saw some beautiful coral, sting rays, an anomies, clownfish and other colorful tropical fish. Rental equipment is available from the dive shop at Sea Gypsy as are trips to other islands. They also offer certification courses for diving.

  • Snorkelling At Kukus Island

    Our snorkelling trip was included in the package...... I was all excited about it....... Then......All I see was dead corals and tons of sea urchins!!!!!!! What the $%^$&%#&#!!!!!The water is so shallow that after swimming 80m out to the sea the water level is only up to your knees!!!! And it's so difficult to swim away from those sea urchins........

  • Eat a coconut

    There are coconut trees all over the island. You can pick a coconut up of the ground and claim it as your own! Find a good rock to beat it against to break open the outer hull. After a lot of fighting with it you'll get to the nut. Give that a good whack, be careful to save the milk (if you like to drink it) and enjoy the fruits of your labors!

  • Watch the sunrise

    The Sea Gyspy lies on the eastern shore of Pulau Sibu. The sunrises are worth getting up for! After all you can always go back to bed or have a snooze on the beach! What else do you have to do!?

  • Take a walk

    There are paths leading around the island. From Sea Gypsy you can cut through the jugle to go across the island to a neighboring resort for a drink. Or you can walk down the beach (turn right onto the beach). The sandy beach becomes rocky and you cross a couple of wooden walkways. Eventually you find a path that takes you into the center of the...

    Sibu, well rimba resort just offers all that you want but then again absolutely not a thing. the accomodation does have an absolutely wonderful outlook over the ever changing beach front. Just one thing you may want to consider (as like many places) take your own small external music outlet. otherwise all is good.

Pulau Sibu Favorites

  • by Gusox Written Oct 4, 2005

    Favorite thing: There are 4 resorts on Pulau Sibu.
    Rimba Resort | Sea Gypsy Village Resort | Sibu Island Cabanas | Sibu Island Resort |

    I spent a weekend at the Sibu Island Cabanas and it was worth the visit.
    This small resorts consits of about 10 (?) cabanas which are quite spacious, each with a little terasse and very well-maintained.
    The resort belongs to a a guy called Shariff, very friendly and veeery talkative:)
    Food is OK, rather over-priced but what to do...you have to eat!
    Weekend packages are offered for around S$ 170.00, including transport to and from Woodlands MRT Station, Singapore, boat transfer, two nights accomodation, one a-la-carte dinner and one buffet dinner as well as a welcome drink.

    Check www.sibuislandcabanas.com for more information.

    Enjoy Sibu!
