“Beautiful blue sea and white sandy beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

We arrived there during New Year's eve so there's quite a number of people (local tourist) but it is still enjoyable and good place to chill and swim. Really white sandy beach and there's a bar that you can get beer and drinks. If you have time and don't mind roughing it out do try to stay at Pulau Pemutusan. The island opposite Pulau Pagang. There's only one chalet there and you can have the island all to yourself.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Actually I came here in rainy season, It was not a best time to visit it, but though the view was really nice, white sandy beach, and blue water, recommended for visit, especially in summer time.

“Voyage to the Trasure Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

It's amazing to have a short trip to this Island... It's beautiful. White sand and blue sea decorates the day. It's better for you to sail in the morning around 7 and come back in the afternoon before 4. The Wave is quite higher after 4. You may take the boat in the hanging bridge of Batang Arau River. Enjoy the scenery. Since the boat price is quite expensive, It's better for you to go together with 8-10 persons.

“Robinson Crusoe would have enjoyed it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We were alone on this island that day which was really good. The snorkelling was decent considering the condition of the coral. There is quite the strong current so beware. It is also a lot of fun to circumnavigate the island at low tide. Do bring surf shoes however.
If you wanted to get away from it all, and could bring supplies with you, there are some bungalows for rent here.

“Good place for relaxing in Padang”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

This place is very quiet and the water is clear..You can make a tent in Pagang if you are indulgence in budget or rent the pavillion.About the price its quite cheap because its managed by Indonesian.You can take the boat from batang arau harbour or Bungus beach ( Closer with Pagang island).But for the cleanness its slightly less.
