About this book

Located nine nautical miles off the east coast of peninsular Malaysia in the heart of the protected Johor Marine Park, Pulau Babi Tengah is a tropical island in the Seribuat Archipelago. Framed by the emerald waters of the South China Sea, the island's wild coastal fringes are lined with long stretches of immaculately fine powder white sandy beaches and rock outcrops.

Its relative isolation from the outside world has also meant that Pulau Tengah, as it is better known, is blessed with an abundance of plant, marine and bird life. Nestled amid the muscular boulders and rocks along the island's southern beach, Batu Batu is the centrepiece of this idyllic setting. The rustic private resort is committed to the preservation, proliferation and protection of the flora and fauna in and around Pulau Tengah through initiatives such as land and sea-based conservation and protection programmes for the Green and Hawksbill turtles, and the dugong.

Lavishly photographed, this book is both a snapshot of an idyllic paradise, and a timely document of Pulau Tengah's natural environment and its extraordinary microcosm of botanical beauty and natural wildlife. More than that, it is also a dedication to the work of Batu Batu's staff, and the countless experts and nature enthusiasts who have visited, and fallen in love with, the island.
