Redang Island

Pulau Redang,  is the largest of a group of nine protected islands dotting the South China Sea off the Terengganu coast. The island offers crystal clear waters and numerous dive sites for enthusiasts.

Sheltered within the Pulau Redang Marine Park, the waters here are rich in marine life. At midday when sun rays penetrate the sea, brilliant hues of coral, anemones and fish can be seen. This paradise island is perfect for snorkelling, swimming, scuba-diving, jungle trekking, boating and canoeing.


Location            :  The tropical paradise of Redang Island is located 45km off the coast of Kuala Terengganu in the west Malaysia.
