Amazing tropical island and crystal clear water! Amazing!

Recommended stay is 3 days 2 nights. One of the perks is of course swimming with the turtles. Simply Amazing! I stayed on the village side of the island.

We stayed at Laguna Resort. Redang Island is beautiful. Turquoise coloured water and the softest white sand. We snorkelled and swam with turtles and it was fantastic.

It was my first time out of my country and I was very excited, when I was reaching the island on boat I was very mesmerized with the water color and beauty of the island. The two day stay on that island was the best island tour I ever had.

Been here several times. Also been to the surrounding islands, namely perhentian and lang tengah, I still like redang most. The crystal clear water and the sandy beach are never been bored.

This island is located off the east coast of Malaysia. It has a lot of beaches and is covered with jungle. Hotels are located on the westcoast. You go here by boat from the mainland. There are a lot of tourists here, mainly chinese.Main activity is diving.

I stayed at Wisana Village - the best place to stay in Redang. The beach is so clean with white sand and crystal water. The snorkeling trip is the best trip ever. The marine park is so beautiful with lots of fished and coral. A great destination for beach lovers, snorkelers and scuba divers.
