Dive, swim, explore, hop from one island to another or just enjoy time on the white sands of Long Beach.
Redang Island is the place to follow ones instincts and take on a tropical adventure.
Lying off the East coast of Malaysia, Redang is a compilation of the 9 small islands of Lima, Paku Besar, Paku Kecil, Kerengga Besar, Kerengga Kecil, Ekor Tebu, Ling Island, Pinang Islands and the group’s namesake, Redang Island. This charming little island cluster is reached with a 1 hour flight from Kuala Lumpur to Kuala Terengganu Airport and from there, a boat trip to Redang Island.
Fast becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations in Malaysia, Redang Island has all the attributes of that dreamed of Tropical Island. Here green jungle clad hills meet white sandy beaches that fold into crystal clear water.
There are two popular sandy beaches to be visited on Redang Island: Long Beach or Pasir Panjang, situated on the east coast and Teluk Dalam Kecil, a sheltered cove tucked away on the northeast of the island. Pasir Panjang is the very image of the perfect tropical beach as it stretches to over 800 meters through the curve of its bay. Snorkelling and diving are the big draws here on Redang Island. Colourful coral reefs rich with marine life lie close to the island’s shoreline, in some cases within fifty feet of the water line and further out towards neighbouring islands good diving opportunities are endless.
Redang heads an interesting group of islands in a picturesque setting. One doesn’t need much of an imagination to see Redang as a perfect choice for that next tropical island holiday.
