Beaufort is a small town in southwestern Sabah, Malaysia. The town does not have much in terms of attractions but travellers may find themselves here for one of several reasons: to whitewater-raft the Padas River, to catch or arriving on the train to/from Tenom, or to take a break while doing the overland trail between Sabah and Sarawak.
One of the most unique islands in Malaysia, the Pulau Tiga Marine Park shot to fame for being the location of the first season of the reality-TV series "Survivor". The park covers an area of 15,864ha and includes three islands - Pulau Tiga, Kalampunian Besar and Kalampunian Damit. Pulau Tiga is unique for its mud volcanoes, the only ones found in Malaysia. The other Kalampunian Damit is also known as "Snake Island" because of the thousands of sea snakes which come to lay their eggs on this and no other island. There is a resort on Pulau Tiga. '''Getting there/away:''' Get to Kuala Penyu (see Get in section above) where you'll have to charter a boat to the islands. You can also charter a boat from Kota Kinabalu. Tours can be arranged from the city.
