Redang

Article Index

Redang is one of the islands off the State of Terengganu. It is still relatively undeveloped and unspoiled. This provides excellent opportunities for snorkeling, scuba diving, jungle trekking coupled with a range of other sports to keep you occupied or just relaxing along the glistening white beaches.

The largest of Terengganu's archipelagoes, Pulau Redang is the centre of a large-scaled marine park. As one of the few marine parks in Malaysia, Redang and its underwater inhabitants are protected by the Fisheries Act (1985). This means that no fishing is to be carried out within a 3.2 km radius of the island. Collecting coral and aquatic life, even as souvenirs, is prohibited

Here, the real fantasy island lies beneath the water. The waters surrounding the 9 islands of Redang form one of the richest marine habitats that await you to explore. Under the crystal clear water are splendid coral gardens filled with corals both hard and soft, foliose and gargonian in the shallower regions - along with a captivating variety of fascinating tropical fish, unspoiled reefs and many types of sea creatures.
