Many people come to Kusu Island to swim in the lagoons and beaches or to go snorkelling in search of turtles which call the island home. You will find reefs surrounding Kusu Island with heaps of soft and hard corals to view. You will likely see a huge range of marine life including clownfish, anemone, giant clams and crabs.

Kusu Island receives the largest number of visitors during the annual Kusu Pilgrimage event. It is held every year on the 9th lunar month, mostly occurring in September or November. Thousands of devotees attend this event in hopes of attaining peace, good health, happiness, prosperity and good luck. Note that overnight stays are not allowed on the island and the ferry charges are about $18 for adults and $12 for children.

The blue lagoons and the glorious beaches creates a friendly atmosphere where you can spend some good time either with friends and family. There is a Tortoise sanctuary where your children will enjoy seeing different types of tortoises and turtles.

The island is not big and in less than 20 minutes, you can walk from one end to the other.
