Mataking Island actually consists of two islands only separated at high tide by a long sand bank. The islands of Mataking are just north of Boheyan in the middle of the Alice Channel and became famous in 1998 when a Scandinavian film crew stayed on the islands for several months to produce a Robinson TV series. The islands have a magnificent white sandy beach with swaying coconut trees. Both islands are surrounded by a large, very long coral reef that slopes from knee deep to about 80m. Groupers and large trevallys, schools of barracudas and lots of spotted rays can be seen at the various dive sites around here. We also have discovered a plateau in 30m depth where grey reef sharks, whitetip sharks, nurse sharks, even hammerheads, and large eagle rays can be observed whenever the current gets really strong.
