The island of Libaran has around 500 inhabitants and has an area of 2 km?. It is a densely overgrown island with no hills or a tall building.
Libaran is ideal for people who are looking for peace and relaxation. Many people agree that the charm of this island lies in its simplicity: a long stretch of beach, crystal clear water and beautiful sunsets. Swimming and snorkeling is a daily activity for visitors. In the evening you can enjoy a river cruise in the mangrove forest or discover the unique experience of night fishing. A great place to get away from it all! Like nearby Selingan, (and Pulau Bakungan Kecil and Pulau Gulisan) Libaran also has a Turtle Conservation Program, which collects eggs from sea turtles to protect the newborn against predators before being brought back to the sea. It is just as hotspot as Selingan, but much more unknown. Pulau Libaran is open to the public for a chance to be a part of the magical nesting experience. Park rangers will guide visitors to the nesting sites in the dark to ensure that they do not disturb the turtles.
You can't miss the fishing village, because the island is not large. The village is a quiet and friendly place. There are not many houses, and they are all surrounded by many palm trees. All in all it looks quite picturesque and it is nice to stroll around here. When you enter the village, one of the first places you see is the boat builder's workshop. He is responsible for building all fishing boats for the village. The most striking of the village are the friendly people. Nothing is touristy here. You will not be bothered by anyone, just a curious look every now and then as you walk through their village.
As you walk through the village, you also see all kinds of 'unknown fruit' hanging in the trees. One is the "Custard Apple Fruit" or scientifically called the "Annona reticulata". The houses are built on stilts. The flower pots on the balustrades are made from coconut shells and hang on a rope. They are painted in a silver color to give them something special; really creative and fun to see!
