Named after its mirror-like reflection of the sky. Sky Mirror is a mystery island that will only emerge for several days every month:
- During the 1st and 15th of a lunar month, as well as 4 days before or after these dates. It is also dubbed the Salar de Uyuni of Malaysia, after the similar natural wonder in Bolivia. Before Sky Mirror is unearthed by a group of travel enthusiasts earlier in 2016, it is almost the best kept secret within the town, only known to the locals.
Having got to know about the “mystery island” from the fisherman, they decided to explore and what the discovered was a piece of stunning land that flawlessly reflecting the sky. These are the pioneers of the island’s discovery, who also named the place Sky Mirror.
After a few returns for observations, they stimulated the idea of uplifting the town’s image by promoting the newfound gem as a must-visit tourism spot. With helps from the local council and residents, Sky Mirror is officially introduced in February 2016, and becomes an immediate sensation. It brings unprecedented numbers of visitors to the town, and today it is one if the fastest growing tourist destinations in Malaysia in a short time.
