Various colorful fish swim back and forth between the coral reefs, as if not afraid to greet tourists who snorkel in this place. Moreover, you can also take underwater photos precisely in front of the words “Pahawang Marine Park” which is very instagrammable and should be uploaded to your social media account.
Tanjung Putus is not far from the vast Pahawang Island and is a dive site that is no less beautiful than Cukuh Bedil above.
