Guided Nature Walk

Follow resident naturalist, Justin Juhun, on a guided expedition through the jungle. Learn about native flora and fauna to the island and breathe in the glory of nature. Justin’s passion is contagious and participants can’t help but be enamoured by his child-like curiosity and wonder. The botanic reserve is rich in native plants and wildlife. Shy proboscis monkeys, though rarely seen, even make their home in this national park.

Gourmet Picnic

A few minutes boat ride from the main jetty sets you alight aside the emerald green waters of Tavajun Bay. Gaya Island Resort’s private beach is accessible by boat, or a 40 minute trek through the jungle. Most take the sea route. Allow your private butler to set up some blankets on the sand and unpack your picnic basket of goodies you’ve preordered. Opt for a chilled bottle of white wine to complete the experience.
