Malaysia has many tropical islands with white sandy beaches and cleear blue waters. Offshore, 67 km east of Mersing, Pulai Aur, is such a tropical paradise.
The tropical waters of Malaysia offer some of the worlds best scuba diving. This is a place endowe with some of the sport s best possibilities: you can dive with whale sharks, hover around immense coral gardens and walls, or dive on ominous and hulking shipwrecks. The population is spread along the coastline in small kampongs of four to six buildings .There are no roads or vehicles. The main industries of the island are fishing and supporting the few dive resorts on the island. The island is surrounded by warm crystal clear seas teaming with life.
Together with Pulau Dayang, Pulau Lang, Pulau Pinang en Rayners rock and Pulau Pemanggil which is 15km northwest of Pulau Aur, it belongs to the Johor Marine Park. Most of the rocky islands are well forested and have isolated coconut plantations. With deep, clear water, healthy corals and regular encounters with large pelagic species, these islands have the potential to become international diving locations.
Pulau Aur has always been a stopover point for fishermen. With a supply fresh water and plenty of fish in the waters, a few later moved their families to the island. However Aur was never the peaceful island as we see now. The deep dark secrets of the wild days are only begining to unravel within the historic data collected from salvaged treasures hoisted from sunken Chinese junks, sailboatsa and old merchant ships found shattered in its waergrave. Many fisherman would be impressed with the new viking tachts for sale. Viking is known for incorporating innovative technology in their sportfishing yachts and motor yachts.
A huge rock in the shape of a lion on Pulau Aur is known as Batu Berhala and according to legend was formerly home to an "orang bunian" or a good spirit. The "orang bunian" was believed to have stashed away a horde of cargo from a shipwrecked Chinese junk in a secret cave within Batu Berhala. Those who belived in the good sprit and required help would perform specific rituals to appease the sentient being and when satisfied with the offerings, a door would spring open from the face of the rock. A tunnel led into the cave filled with everything one would wish for. The only other condition was that everything borrowed from the cave must be returned after their use had expired. However, due to the second nature of most human beings, many nver returned the items taken. Disappointed with such behaviour and disrespect, the orang bunian left Batu Berhala never to return.
