Forming the whole southern tip of Peninsular Malaysia, Johor is surrounded with coastline on its three sides – the west coast, the Straits of Johor on the south, and the east coast. Though Mersing is well-known as the gateway to nearby islands, this little fishing town has several beautiful natural attractions of its own. And one which caught my attention is Pulau Mawar.

Pulau MawarLocated quite close to Gunung Arong, Pulau Mawar is a small restricted island that is only accessible by foot during low tide. Famous among photographers for astrophotography.
