Home / Holiday Destinations in Malaysia / REDANG ISLAND (PULAU REDANG), TERENGGANU




Located around 45 kilometres off the coast of Terengganu is Pulau Redang, 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 31 dive sites. Its clear waters contain hundreds of live coral species and thousands of marine species including manta rays, stingrays and sharks. When the sun rays penetrate the sea at midday, brilliant hues of coral, anemones and fish can be seen.

The waters around Pulau Redang also contain two historic shipwrecks: The H.M.S. Prince of Wales and H.M.S. Repulse, which sank here at the start of World War II. This paradise island is perfect for snorkelling, swimming, scuba- diving, jungle trekking, boating and canoeing. No fishing is allowed within a 3.2 kilometres radius of the island as Pulau Redang is gazetted as a marine park. The collection of corals and other aquatic life is also strictly prohibited.

Must do:

– Go swimming and snorkelling in its crystal clear waters.
– Explore all of the island’s 31 dive sites.
– Take a relaxing stroll along the 800 metres long beach.
– Go jungle trekking.
