Baras Island - a miraculous island!

Baras Island is a small island formed by white sand made of coral. It is only visible when the tide is low, and is thus known as the "miracle island". The diameter of the island is a few dozen meters wide at most! It has been used as a film location for promotional videos, making it renowned for its exquisite scenery.


The sea surrounding Baras Island is breathtakingly clear and blue! Swimming in the clear sea with colorful fish will surely become an unforgettable memory! If you are lucky, you may even encounter a sea turtle!
