Marine Park is located 2 kilometers off the southern part of Labuan main
island. Beautiful and wild, the park encompasses 10 square kilometers of
pristine water and three secluded islets, namely Pulau Kuraman, Pulau Rusukan
kecil and Pulau Rusukan Besar. It features long stretches of sandy beaches,
reef atoll, jungle tracks and quiet tidal pools. Sea snakes, rare butterflies
and a prolific bird life add to its enchantment.
Snorkeling and scuba trails introduce you to an underwater world of fascinating marine life. The many secluded beach spots offer unusual privacy and natural ambience.
The park has been earmarked for upgrades under the 8th Malaysia Plan (2001-2005). Facilities to be built in the park include jetties, chalets, camping sites and barbecue pits. Other public amenities such as water and electricity will also be installed.
Banned - Fishing and anchoring
Local authority bans all form of fishing in waters around the Park. It also bans anchoring. Visiting yachts will either have to rent a mooring or tie to a dock in one of the marinas in the main island of Labuan. The only exceptions are boats under three meters in length using a stone anchor, and larger vessels having special advance authorization in writing from the authority. But you may photograph, swim, observe and study all form of marine fauna and flora. You are also allowed to scuba dive, sail, kayak and snorkel freely.
