Island
Tun Sakaran Marine Park, also known as Semporna Islands Park, is a marine park located off the east coast of Sabah, Malaysia. It consists of the islands of Bodgaya, Boheydulang, Sabangkat, and Salakan, the sand cays of Maiga, Sibuan, and Mantabuan, and the patch reefs of Church and Kapikan. In 2004, the park became the seventh gazetted area under Sabah Parks with a total area of 350 km². There are approximately 2,000 people living within the park, most of whom consist of the nomadic Bajau Laut (Sea Gypsies) people, who live in stilt houses and houseboats in and around the marine park.HistoryBodgaya was first gazetted in 1933 as a forest reserve, while Boheydulang as a bird sanctuary. Proposals to establish a state park was first made in 1977. Later in 1998, a collaboration, known as the Semporna Islands Project, between the Marine Conservation Society (MCS), Sabah Parks, WWF Malaysia and Nature Link took place. It was funded by the European Community under its global environment budget line. Finally in 2004 the islands were gazetted as a state park by Sabah Parks.

  • 敦沙兰卡国家公园主要是有五个小岛,每个岛上去之前都要先登记护照,岛上有军人把手,导游说对面就是菲律宾了。这里的海非常平静,非常清澈,浮潜可以看到很多的鱼儿。  more »
  • 白沙滩,各种颜色的海水,一切都是那么漂亮,这就是我想看的海,海水特别漂亮,沙滩细腻,到仙本那一定要来看军舰岛,不然会后悔  more »
