Eventhough I spend less than 1hour here but this island offers better than Manukan Island. Clear water and lots of fish.

Our land operator arranged us on a half day island tour with buffet lunch. Manutik island is great for all beach lovers. You can snorkel,play banana boat, parasail, flying fish, enjoy a glass bottom boat island cruise in search of 'Nemo' and 'Dory' marine life, all activities listed at own expense.

The island is beautiful, and you do lots of activities such as: sea walk, Scuba diving, para sailing and also get free lunch. The toilet is OK. And no shower room. You can clean yourself outside, they prepare clean water. Men and women clean themselves side by side.

I'm not sure why this is rated so high but I really didn't enjoy Mamutik Island. There's not much beach area and water is a bit filthy. Manukan island was much more enjoyable

Mamutik is a small island with a nice clean beach and clear water. The beach was not crowded when I was there in the morning but there were a number of people waiting their turn under some tents to board boats to go snorkeling.

We visited this Island as part of a Gaya Island Resort trip. Instead of joining the crowds on the Island we took a boat to the back side where we had an amazing time snorkelling in the reef there. The coral life was good and we saw a lot of beautiful fish - including a group of clown fish. I... More

It was much better than Sapi. The beach is beautiful and you can find calm empty spots just to relax. In July the rain arrived at 2 p.m. So it was better to go to the island with the first boat and leave around 1.30-2.00.
