Pulau Tiga is the largest of the three islands of the Pulau Tiga Marine National Park. It measures 1km from northeast to southwest and 5km from northwest to southeast and is located 11km northeast of Kuala Penyu. Access to Pulau Tiga is possible by boat from Kuala Penyu. Since no public service exists, the only way to visit Pulau Tiga is via an organised tour. Pulau Tiga is of volcanic origin and is covered with dense vegetation (tropical rainforest). At its centre are some mud volcanoes, where people can take a bath in mud pools. The sea water around Tiga island is not very clean, especially on the southern side where all resorts are located. The southern beach on Pulau Tiga is relatively unimpressive (very narrow and not so clean). The Pulau Tiga resorts doesn't make a much better impression either, despite the not so low room prices.
