"PULAU AUR... a beautiful place to visit" Pulau Aur by bkoon

Pulau Aur Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 51 photos


The island of Aur is located in the South China Sea, off the east coast of Johor and about seventy-five kilometres from Mersing. Aur compromises of two main islands, one with a rustic fishing village and a longhouse providing visitors with the most basic of accommodation whilst the other has resort facilities. These islands can be reached by boat from Mersing and depending on the type of boat visitors use, the journey can take 2.5 to 5 hours.

Relaxing on the beach, under the shaddy trees is not a bad idea.
