Pulau Hujong is an island 12km off Mersing covered with dense forest. It has a longish beach on its west side with some buildings on it, but no jetty. Near Hujong lies the Pulau Tengah island. This has several beaches, one with some buildings. At the time of visiting construction for a new resort was going on.
A few km from Hujong lies Pulau Rawa, an idyllic island with a dream of a beach and one resort. Very close to Rawa (10 minutes by boat), further to the north lies the island of Pulau Gual. It is uninhabited, has no jetty, almost no trees and just one short beach. North of Gual, a short distance by boat, lies the island of Pulau Mensirip. Mensirip is densely forested and has a long white coral sand beach on the south side. There is no accomodation whatsoever on Mensirip and no jetty. Pulau Harimau is the northernmost of this grouplet of islands and is quite close to Mensirip. Harimau is uninhabited, has almost no trees and just one beach on the south side. On its highest point there is an observation platform and a radio beacon accessible via a staircase.
