Location

The Pulau Redang Marine Park consists of 9 islands and is located 12 nautical miles North East of Peninsular Malaysia. This group of islands is recognized as having one of the best coral reefs and marine ecosystems in Peninsular Malaysia and is the preferred destination for Malaysian divers. Pulau Redang is rewarded with nutrient rich waters from the South China Sea and is home to many variety of marine life and reef building corals. The island is an ideal place to combine diving activities, snorkelling or just a relaxing beach vacation. Redang Island Found on the East Coast of Malaysia, the Island of Redang is located just 45km from the coast of Terengganu state.

Our Island itself is quite large approximately 42 square kilometers in land mass and has two of the most beautiful white sandy beaches found in Malaysia. Both are filled with coconut trees and crystal clear blue water fills the naturally protected bays. Both of these beaches are found right in front of your island home.
