The larger of Pulau Satang's two islands, 1-sq-km Pulau Satang Besar, 14km northwest of Telaga Air, is the only island that is partially open to visitors. Groups are allowed to land, but swimming is forbidden within the core protected zone (anywhere within a 2km radius of the island's highest point).
The island has a fine beach and dorm accommodation with generator-powered electricity. Overnight visitors can sometimes watch fragile eggs being moved from the beach to a hatchery and, possibly, witness baby turtles being released into the wild.
Visiting Pulau Satang is usually only possible from April to September.
