Big Sister’s Island, known in Malay as Pulau Subar Laut, is around 39,000 square meters in size and faces the ocean. Little Sister’s Island, also known as Pulau Subar Darat, has a size of around 17,000 m2 and faces the mainland.

The two islands are separated by a narrow canal. This canal shouldn’t be used by swimmers or divers since the currents are quite dangerous.

Water activities

There is an array of marine life on Sister Island’s coast which is observable by diving. Furthermore, other water activities such as Paddle boarding are available too if you are slightly hydrophobic!

Food on board the yacht!

After spending hours in the heat, you will get hungry. Two meals each day are included in the 2D1N sail-cation. Once following the night docking, and once for breakfast the following morning.
