JOHOR MARINE PARK

 

There are two distinct entities to the Johor Marine Park, the inner islands and the outer islands.

 

There are two distinct entities to the Johor Marine Park, the inner islands and the outer islands. The inner islands of Rawa, Hujung, Tengah, Besar, Tinggi, Mentigi and Sibu are easily accessible and popular among non-divers. They are excellent for snorkelling and the accommodation comes in the form of rustic chalets. The offshore islands are about 60km from Mersing and include Pulau Aur and three smaller islands ? Dayang, Lang and Pinang. The island of Pemanggil, 15km to the northwest, has good beach accommodation and offers activities such as angling and diving. Accommodation and dive centres are also available on Pulau Aur and Pulau Dayang.

 

These rocky islands are well-forested with isolated coconut plantations. They are also the local centre for Black Marlin fishing. Pulau Aur has numerous undersea pinnacles rising from 30m to about 10m below the surface. The waters are extremely clear and the pinnacles are home to hard corals, which includes table corals (Acropora spp) and impressive boulder coral (Porites spp). Whale sharks and Manta rays are sighted regularly. The beaches are wonderful and the crystal clear seas spectacular.
