The Sky Mirror in Kuala Selangor is a natural phenomenon that has been compared to Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni, a similar-looking wonder of nature and the world’s largest salt flats.
The Sky Mirror of Kuala Selangor is a natural wonder that has become one of the latest tourist attractions in the area.
Located in the middle of the Straits of Malacca, the Sky Mirror is a sandbank that only emerges for 3-4 hours in the mornings, producing a mirror-like reflection of the sky.
What’s even more surprising is that this mysterious phenomenon only appears on the 1st, 2nd, 14th, 15th, 16th and 30th day of the month according to the Chinese lunar calendar.
The sandbank itself is home to a great variety of marine life, where you’ll find plenty of hermit crabs, soldier crabs, bamboo clams, sand dollars, sea anemones, snails, sea snakes, conches, bailer shells and more.
Fully guided tours of the sandbank, which can be accessed via a 30-minute boat ride from the mainland, depart near Pantai Remis.
