The islands vary in their land cover; most are sandy with limited vegetation, while the larger islands have deep rainforests and are fringed by intertidal mangroves. The Pulau Banyak area contains many varieties of stony Heliopora and branching Acropora types of coral. However, crown-of-thorns starfish are a significant problem. The fringing coral reefs are habitat to diverse species, including green and leatherback sea turtles, pelagic and coral fish, and varieties of octopus, lobster, and other sea life. The weather is tropical; August to January are the rainy season, followed by a dry season from approximately February to July.

The island group had a population of 6,570 persons at the 2010 Census and 7,640 at the 2020 Census. The majority of the population resides in villages on the islands of Tuangku, Pulau Baguk and Pulau Balai. Most of the dozens of small islands in the area have no permanent homes but are used instead for gardening and leisure, with small pondoks and bungalows constructed for temporary visits The population is spread throughout the islands, but divided administratively into villages (listed below with their populations at the 2010 Census)
