Pulau Mawar hiking is also a good experience. Hike until the famous scenic spot: Pulau Mawar Heaven Gate (天堂之门) that show in the picture above. It’s super beautiful, maybe you can meet god there hahaha…

Mangrove Swamp is a must-see when you’re on Pulau Mawar. See and enjoy nature. Don’t step in mud or you’ll get in trouble.

Super deeper recommend you to snorkelling and diving if you are an ocean lover. How perfect the crystal-clear water of Pantai Mawar! Just explore the underwater world with fishes that discover colourful marine life you have ever been met.

Island Hopping: Mersing is near many islands such as Pulau Rawa, Pulau Besar, Pulau Raja, Pulau Harimau and many other pulau. You can hire a boat and take a day trip to visit all these islands. Trust me, it’s valuable compared to what you pay!

It’s camping time!!! Super great place for camping. You can pitch a tent on the beach and spend all nights with stars and more stars. Sleep with sounds of waves and sea breeze, enjoy and get excited until I can’t sleep hahaha…

Rawa island (Pulau Rawa)

Is Mawar island boring for you? Try lah Rawa island! Definitely full of beach activities! It’s similar to the sea activities between Rawa island (Pulau Rawa) and  Mawar island (Pulau Mawar). But Rawa Island had more activities like cliff jump, giant water slides. I personally like Rawa island and Harimau island compared to Mawar island. The scene here is just like Semporna but it’s cheaper. The best thing that I, you, we, they must try is island hopping! So so so much fun!

Harimau island (Pulau Harimau)

Although it is called Harimau island, there are no tigers here hahaha…Okay sorry, it’s such a cool joke because Harimau is tigers in Bahasa. Oh my god you must snorkelling at a cave or hole and take pictures! Super good experience.  However, you must put a sunblock before having any sea activities. Or else sunburn comes to you without hesitation then you become black black hahaha. That coral tour you’ve got to do.
