SKETCH YOUR JOURNEY
Pulau Rawa is the definitive answer for those who are dying for an island escapade, away from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle. This exclusive destination is often known as the “Maldives of Johor” and it is easy to see why. Be utterly amazed by its clear blue sea, lush greeneries, majestic sandy beaches, and other hidden charms that this haven has to offer.
Enter and explore the underwater realm of Rawa Island by going on a snorkeling trip. Famous for its sprawling coral reefs, it is definitely a feast for the eyes as everything is crystal clear underneath the sea. Get up close and personal with its marine critters in the kaleidoscopic ocean. You might even find yourself catching a glimpse of the Blacktip reef shark in its natural habitat.
There is also a hard-to-miss water slide located near the beach, which is perfect if you feel like releasing your inner child out. Consisting of two slides, the orange one will take you to some turns while the blue slide will lurch you straight into the sea. There will surely be a splashing galore! Then, go on a short stroll by the beach and be sure to catch the sunset in all of its sublime glory. Snap a few photos along the way as the picturesque backdrop of the South China Sea will mesmerize you without a doubt.
Start your day by going on foot around the island. The Island Walk Trail is a fantastic way to get acquainted with Mother Nature. A good, brisk walk by the trail will introduce you to an unforgettable panoramic view of the great sea and also the neighbouring island near Rawa, namely Pulau Besar, Pulau Tengah, and Pulau Hujung.
Get those adrenaline pumping by exploring the greener hillside part of the island—jungle trekking style. It’s a relatively easy excursion, as the path is guided by signboards. It takes less than half an hour to reach the top of the hill. What awaits you on top is a breathtaking, bird’s-eye view of the vast blue ocean, evoking a sense of pure, unadulterated joy for its beholder.
Spend the last day of your trip to Rawa Island by doing nothing. Yes. Nothing. Grab your sunnies and sunscreen, lay by the beach and treat yourself to the blissful, zen-like tranquility that Rawa Island has in store for its visitor.
