Or you can arrange with the resort for a pick up at Mersing jetty.
Some names of the ferry ticketing offices are: "Sun & Sand Holiday" and "SS Service Agency".
Boat transfer from Mersing is at 12pm. The return time from Rawa is at 10.00 am.
As you step off the boat feel the magic of Rawa begin to work its spell upon you.
You can catch the sound of the soft tropical breeze, as it whispers through the palm trees and as you gaze on the beautiful white sand beach.
You know that here, for a while, you can truly relax.
Only tourists will come to the island. Maybe it is because this is a privately-owned island which will charge even for a day-trip entry.
In the beautiful blue sea the coral garden is teeming with fish and marine life, from coral reef fish to Pelagic fish,
a surprise for many people.
In this marine park giant clams abound, you may see it all but nothing is to be touched.
Preservation, conservation, and a marine park to boot, not even dead shells can be taken. So may admire everything, but don't take anything with you.
Pulau Rawa has secluded white beaches and palm fringed; images which can be found here in Malaysia, to add to the dream blazing sunlight and a cool green,
clear lagoon, where fish dart and swim in never ending circles. Visitors on the beach wallowing in the sunlight.
When it is very hot, you need sunglass and sun-block lotion. It's advisable to bring that with you. For drinking water, you have to refill your water bottles several times from the
resort only restaurant called "Cafe de Rawa" many times. This is also the only place for your food.
For the more adventurous, you can check out the caves or take a 15 min trek up the hill that overlooks the other side of the island. Fifteen
minutes is a relatively short hike. Someone who isn't used to hiking should be able to do it easily.
A pretty interesting view which usually promises a beautiful sunrise.
You'll understand that Pulau Rawa is a gem of an island.
This paradise island is a haven from the stresses and strains of daily life.
Although the resort is open all year round, it is advisable not to travel during
the monsoon season between November and early January. If waves are too high,
the boat operators will not transfer guests to the island.
