Things To Do

Tun Sakaran Marine Park
A visit to the famous Bohey Dulang Island in Tun Sakaran Marine Park is recommended as Pom Pom is located just 15-20 minutes away.

Snorkeling & Scuba Diving
As one of Semporna’s top dive sites, scuba diving and snorkeling aficionados often choose to spend the day underwater fawning over the vivid and unique marine life found in the area.

There is no village on Pom Pom Island, meaning that there is minimal human impact and pollution, making it one of the most exciting dive destinations in the region.

Turtle Nesting/Hatching
Being a significant nesting location site for Green and Hawksbill turtles, guests who stay during the turtle nesting season (April – November) often get to witness first hand the hatching and releasing of baby turtles into the ocean, a rare and unique experience.

Other activities include beach volleyball/football, ocean kayaking, bicycling, hiking tours as well as various indoor activities.


Equipped with rustic-chic resort accommodation in the form of Pom Pom Island Resort, visitors can look forward to recuperating in air-conditioned rooms after a hot, sunny day at the beach or booking a pampering spa or massage session for the ultimate tropical island experience.

Pom Pom Island Resort is the only resort on the island.
