Bawah Island

A part of Indonesia’s Riau Islands, Bawah Island is just a two-hour journey from Singapore by ferry and seaplane. Among the many islands nearby, Bawah stands out for its pristine coral reefs and its eponymous exclusive luxurious private island resort. Bawah Island is part of a cluster of five total islands that form an oval blue lagoon, and at low-tide, the lagoon is separated from the ocean by the white sand connecting the ring of islands.
