To the south-east coast of Malaysia, you’ll find the small and remote paradise island of Pulau Rawa.
Twenty miles from Tioman Island and 16km off Mersing, Pulau Rawa is only a kilometre long and 200 meters wide.
The isle is named after the Malay word Rawa for white doves, or more specifically pied imperial pigeons, which are native to the island.
Despite its being a mere dot, the island is blessed with captivating and stunning panoramas.
Beaches of powdery white sand, tiny lagoons, colourful corals in knee-deep water, incredibly clear blue and turquoise water, lush tropical forests and rocky hills with dramatic cliffs make Pulau Rawa an Instagram haven.
The island is the best place for pure relaxation of body and mind. Activities include hiking, fish feeding, canoeing, windsurfing, scuba diving and snorkeling.
A one-hour ferry ride from Mersing is the gateway to the island.
