Satang Besar is one of the islands in Sarawak where the marine turtles have been laying their eggs since time immemorial. The island too had an eventful past, being used by pirates as their hide-out to loot trading vessels when Santubong was flourishing as the barter trading centre around the 11th Century A.D. Today, the marine turtles came here to lay their eggs while the Turtle Management Board and Forest Department rehabilitate the turtle population.
