Add a Point to the Map

Pulau Rawa is a small island privately owned by the Sultanate of Johor, and offers one of the nicest beaches in Malaysia - if not in Asia. Fret not, the island is not just a private getaway for royalty but open to the public.

You can get to the island via a ferry from Mersing jetty and the only way you can get in on the sweet-salty goodness of Pulau Rawa is if you pick up a package with either one of the two sole accommodation options on the island.

Rawa Safaris Resorts comes at a higher price but also modern comforts like air-conditioning, hot water and televisions.  If you are on a tighter budget (you can't travel on a shoestring for Rawa) then go with Alang's Rawa. They have only nine huts and rooms are cooled by a fan; saline water will flow out of your tap.

There isn't much to do on Pulau Rawa except to shut your mind to the madness of the real world and let the sun beat down on you while you melt into the soft sand and clear turquoise waters.
