LIST OF ATTRACTIONS
Liukang is a pleasant island located right opposite Bara Beach where you’ll find white sandy beaches and plenty of snorkelling and diving spots. There are a couple of restaurants to stop by for lunch and you can see the daily lives of the local people while walking through the village.
You can buy handmade sarongs as souvenirs from the local ladies in the village. They spend up to 2 months weaving each sarong underneath their chalets.
The “Goat” Island. Many years ago, a farmer moved his goats to this island to protect them from harm. Nowadays, you’ll be lucky if you spot one! Yet the name still remains… Kambing Island.
A snorkelling or diving trip to Pulau Kambing is a must as there is plenty to see at the coral garden which surrounds it.
