, it has been claimed, is without so much as a shadow of a doubt the creme de la creme when it comes to drop-dead gorgeous private beach island destinations.
Pulau Bawah, or Nether Island in English, is sheer perfection: a tiny cluster of five out-of-the-way islands, surrounding a total of, not one, nor two, but three natural lagoons, containing the clearest azure-coloured water this side of famous Maldives.
Your very own little slice of tropical paradise
This dreamy little island paradise comes to us courtesy of a pas-de-deux between Geology and Mother Nature.
The unique Pulau Bawah location really has to be seen in person, indeed, experienced in person even, to be truly fathomed.
A total 360 degrees of gorgeous vistas, white, fine sandy beaches, countless coconut trees laden with fruit and gin-clear sea water; Pulau Bawah is breathtakingly blissful, without exaggeration a tropical dream come true.
Serenity reigns supreme
But there's more. Pulau Bawah also has world-class snorkelling, scuba-diving, hiking, as well as trekking on offer. As well as more R&R-based activitities like lazing, strolling and, pretty much everyone's favorite, sun-bathing.
But, best of all, Pulau Bawah is located just over 150 miles from Singapore, nothing more than an overnight's sail by yacht or power cruiser - your choice.
Pulau Bawah, your private little paradise.
