Pulau Bawah is one of those idyllic ends of the earth islands that really must be included on your Asia must-see list.
Pulau Bawah is located in the Indonesian archipelago called Anambas. Surprisingly, Anambas is actually found in the South China Sea, about 150 miles east of Mersing, on the Malaysia east coast. But in spite of this geographical location, the Anambas islands, all 233 of them, are Indonesian territory.
Pulau Bawah is been said to bethe show piece island that is the Anambas Archipelago. Pulau Bawah is so dazzling that even tourism pundits believe that Pulau Bawah is in no way inferior to any of the eye-poppingly beautiful islands in Maldives.
Pulau Bawah is secluded. Check! Pulau Bawah is surrounded by crystal-clear seas. Check! Pulau Bawah offers untouched coral reefs as far as the eye can see. Check!
In fact, it's not for nothing that Pulau Bawah has been dubbed "South East Asia's last hidden paradise". Pulau Bawah has gone unnoticed for centuries, but can now be visited from Tanjung Pinang, Pulau Bintan, Indonesia, which is located just south of Singapore.
