The setting for the series is the remote island of Pulau Tiga in the South China Sea. It is approximately nine-square miles and is situated off the coast of Borneo.

Pulau TigaThe crystal clear waters around the island contain long stretches of colourful coral reef and are teeming with a variety of marine life such as barracuda, and shark. There is dense tropical rainforest all over the island and it is lined with white sandy beaches. The island is actually a nature reserve run by Malaysian guides.

There is a lot of wildlife on the island... macaque monkeys, birds, monitor lizards, rats, turtles, poisonous snakes to mention just a few. More info about the island at the site - click here. Pulau Tiga island hompage - site no longer working
